Sheriff Stanek on FirstNet's Outreach to the Law Enforcement Community
Last week concluded sequential winter legislative meetings of the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA), Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA), and Major County Sheriffs’ Association (MCSA), bringing together the nation’s law enforcement leaders for this annual event in Washington, D.C. The week of meetings also showcased briefings from leadership from the new Administration, which used the opportunity to emphasize its support to American law enforcement and public safety. Sheriff Stanek says the “excitement is building” for FirstNet throughout the law enforcement community. “What FirstNet has been able to do to educate chiefs and sheriffs across this country, and really bringing it down to the line officer, the line deputy and first responders, has been tremendous,” he says. “We are going to have a nationwide, interoperable broadband system that will provide exactly what my deputies need who are out on the road every day.” More: http://www.firstnet.gov/newsroom/blog/law-enforcement-comes-together-our-nation%E2%80%99s-capital-winter-meetings

What is Community Policing?
In 2015, as apart of the City of Columbia's 2016–2019 Strategic Plan, the Columbia Police Department expanded its Community Outreach Unit (COU) in hopes to build better relationships with residents. Officers were assigned specific areas of town to get to know the neighbors and understand what problems or concerns the residents have. Now, three years later, the COU has grown to 8 officers, with funding secured for two more officers by next year. The City Channel sits down with COU supervisors Lt. Geoff Jones and Sgt. Mike Hestir to understand what community policing really means.

Using Community Policing Strategies to Prevent Violent Extremism
This video provides recommendations for police departments establishing community outreach and engagement programs to prevent violent extremism and promote public safety. It presents the results of a research project, “The Challenge and Promise of Using Community Policing Strategies to Prevent Violent Extremism,” by David Schanzer (Duke University), Charles Kurzman (UNC Chapel Hill), Jessica Toliver (Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), and Elizabeth Miller (PERF). These researchers surveyed, interviewed, and visited police departments across the country, and conducted focus groups with Muslim Americans to better understand the community's feelings about how Muslim Americans are treated by law enforcement. The research project was funded by the National Institute of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice, but the views expressed in the video are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the Department of Justice.

New Orleans Community-Police Mediation Program
The New Orleans Community-Police Mediation Program is a program of the City of New Orleans Office of the Independent Police Monitor. Its goal is to create spaces where everyone involved can feel fully heard and understood, come up with their own solutions for what policing can look like, democratize policing, build mutual understanding, and improve relationships between New Orleans Police Officers and community members. Mediation is an alternative to the traditional complaint investigation process by the NOPD’s Public Integrity Bureau for complaints of professionalism, discourtesy and neglect of duty. By improving the relationship between the community and police, mediation helps make neighborhoods safer and stronger. Mediation is voluntary. All participants are at a mediation of their own free will and can end the process at any time. No one is forced to agree to anything they don’t want to. Mediation is non-judgmental. The mediators don’t give advice, decide who is right or wrong, or take sides. Mediation is confidential. To help you and the civilian speak freely, mediation is confidential. The mediation is not recorded or videotaped. The mediators destroy their notes after the session and do not file any reports about what is said.

Scottsdale Police P.L.A.Y. program
A new Scottsdale Police and Parks & Recreation program, called Partnering Law Enforcement and Youth (PLAY), encourages uniformed officers to stop by the myriad of after school programs that happen around Scottsdale – at schools, parks & recreation venues, Boys and Girls Clubs and more. The officer isn’t there to present information or as part of a specific activity – they are just there to enjoy a personal interaction with the kids. Oftentimes they work with a group of children on a joint arts project, which they all sign when complete. These projects hang proudly in the police district stations. The power of the program is people – children get to see that police officers are real people, and officers are reminded that members of the community are people as well. The program has become a priority for police (community outreach experiences are now required for officers in training), who say, “the program brings us closer to the people we serve.”

DEA360 Strategy - Prevention Collaboration
DEA’s 360 Strategy responds to the heroin and prescription opioid pill crisis. The 360 Strategy takes an innovative three-pronged approach to combating heroin/opioid use through: coordinated Law Enforcement actions against drug cartels and heroin traffickers in specific communities; Diversion Control enforcement actions against DEA registrants operating outside the law and long-term engagement with pharmaceutical drug manufacturers, wholesalers, pharmacies, and practitioners; and Community Outreach through local partnerships that empower communities to take back affected neighborhoods after enforcement actions and prevent the same problems from cropping up again. Their partnership with CADCA has proven to be an effective way to engage and mobilize community members to take part in this prevention movement.

Arun Kundnani Part 6: CVE Community Outreach Programs
Arun Kundnani examines the problems with countering violent extremism (CVE) community engagement programs, which often consist of government officials urging community leaders to suppress dissent against U.S. foreign and domestic policies. According to Kundnani, the government tends to view these programs less as an effort to address community concerns than an intelligence gathering exercise. An edited transcript of the entire interview is here: http://www.brennancenter.org/transcript-arun-kundnani Arun Kundnani is the author of “The Muslims are Coming! Islamophobia, Extremism, and the Domestic War on Terror,” (Verso Books, 2014). Kundnani, an adjunct professor at New York University, has studied terrorism and the effects of counter-radicalization policies in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Mayor Joe Hogsett Empowers Real-Time Data Center
Indianapolis – Mayor Joe Hogsett joined Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Chief Troy Riggs and members of IMPD today to mark the implementation of Marion County’s newest law enforcement tool: the Real-Time Data Center. The center, which will be staffed by both civilian and law enforcement personnel, will give local, state, and federal partners access to instant data on criminal activity and other public safety information. “The first step toward a safer city is through smarter law enforcement strategies,” said Mayor Hogsett. “This Data Center will provide our brave men and women in the field up to the second information, ensuring that our officers will always know more than those who would do our community harm.” As a former federal prosecutor, data-driven public safety has long been a priority for Mayor Hogsett. On his second day in office, Mayor Hogsett identified smarter law enforcement operations and a move toward 21st century policing as goals for his first 100 days in office. The Real-Time Data Center was also a major plank in a comprehensive public safety platform released during last year’s election. “This administration is consistently looking forward to see how we can police more adeptly,” Chief Riggs said. “This center sends a message that we’re not just going to be tough on crime, but smart about how we do it.” As the facility ramps up its capabilities in the coming weeks, public safety agencies will have access to tens of millions of data points. This will include the compilation and analysis of local arrest records, police reports, meeting and interview data, as well as computer-aided dispatch information. Shared across jurisdictional lines, this information will allow law enforcement to better predict and prevent criminal activity before it occurs. First 100 Days Public Safety Plan On his first full day in office, Mayor Joe Hogsett responded to the city’s historic homicide rate by convening a summit of local, state, and federal law enforcement officials to discuss the current state of public safety in Indianapolis and develop a plan of action for the first 100 days of his administration. As a result of the collaborative discussion, a holistic plan was laid out that included; a return to neighborhood policing, the implementation of collaborative law enforcement strategies, a move to data-based public safety and focus on community outreach. ###

LGBTI Pride Month: Community Voices for Inclusion
On June 20, 2018 the U.S. Department of State hosted an LGBTI human rights webchat in honor of Pride Month — a month celebrating the contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities in the United States and around the world. The theme of this year’s discussion: community leaders supporting inclusion and acceptance. The panelists, including representatives from the faith community, law enforcement and the private sector, highlighted a variety of perspectives on the importance of social inclusion of LGBTI individuals. Viewers asked the experts questions and shared their own thoughts during the Facebook Live webchat. To watch the program in Spanish, please go to: https://youtu.be/AldlIN9KG5c. This is an important time to have a conversation on international LGBTI human rights. While there has been a lot of progress in recent years, enormous challenges persist, particularly related to bias-motivated violence and anti-discrimination issues. The panel of experts shared their experiences and provided examples of practices and initiatives that promote inclusion, dignity and respect for all. Panelists: Father Kevin O’Brien, SJ, is currently the dean of the Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University. He frequently gives talks around the country. Prior to joining Santa Clara, O’Brien taught at Georgetown University’s Department of Theology. There he also held the position of vice president of Mission and Ministry where he headed inter-faith campus ministry programs. He received “internet fame” for his take on the Merry Christmas v Happy Holidays controversy where he takes a very inclusive view. He is a lawyer by training. Sabrina Kent recently moved up to chief of staff at the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. She works with leadership to advocate for economic empowerment of LGBT-owned businesses both within the U.S. and globally. Kent also leads the organization’s internship program, mentoring youth.
