The Police Department plays a very visible role in the community and individuals' lived experience will likely influence any conversations they have about police budgeting. Regardless of whether those experiences were positive or negative, they can bias opinions on future allocation of resources and move the conversation away from community priorities, results, and evidence-based practices. Local governments need to develop processes for gaining feedback from the community that represents views from the entire community. In this webinar, get tips on how to reach out to citizens and learn how police departments have incorporated public engagement into their broader public safety strategies.
