Community Engagement Week | Feb 29th to March 4th
What is Community Engagement Week?
Community Engagement Week is 5 days focused on bringing awareness to the importance of community engagement for law enforcement agencies. This is critical because effective community engagement mobilizes public safety resources, promotes a shared vision and serves as a catalyst for changing policies, programs and practices. When done correctly, law enforcement and residents enter into a mutually beneficial partnership. Because of this, we are devoting the entire week to helping enhance agency awareness around the importance of community engagement.
Here is what we have planned for the week:
