[IPAC-List] Relations between community and police: How can we help?

Seeking suggestions of things that we could do to improve the 
relationship between communities and the police departments that serve them.

(Interpret this broadly, to include psychometric, HR, and general 
management/administration domains.)

For example, I have used community representatives as members of oral 
boards for selection and promotion in public safety departments.  I did 
this years ago, but it worked well then.

A presumed benefit of such involvement is that the community is invested 
in the development of the selection/promotion criteria and in the 
evaluation of individual candidates, and that makes it harder for the 
community to criticize the officers in the future.

Take care,
