CB007 Police-Community Partnerships: Building Relationships of Mutual Accountability - Interactive Webinar Training

We have witnessed far too many instances when the police have come in direct conflict with the communities they “serve and protect.” Race has been a prominent element of these conflicts but many point to other triggers: despair and hopelessness in poor communities, citizens not knowing their rights or not trusting the police; inappropriate police training and the pressures of the job, or outright abuse and lack of empathy. In this interactive webinar we’ll explore the issues that affect police-community relations and identify strategies to prevent and reverse these dynamics through partnerships based on mutual accountability.

Join us to explore the evolution of policing in American history and learn about its current practice. Understand how good intentions on either side can lead to disaster, and discover tools to prevent and resolve conflict. Develop strategies to educate community members about their rights and to prepare the police to work alongside the community. Learn to address head-on the most challenging issues, like race and class in police-community relations, in ways that result in strong, collaborative relationships that do not skirt accountability.

This faculty-led webinar training will last 90 minutes and include resource materials, interactive polling, and participant Q & A with the faculty. A quiz will be open at the conclusion of the session which you must pass in order to obtain a certificate and credit toward continuing education hours. Participants can access the training site upon registration and begin looking at the available resources prior to the live online training session.
