Gainging Communty’s Trust

0 In an incident in Texas, officer David Casebolt tackled a 14 year old girl and pulled out his gun on a group of teens who were in a pool party. Now the police have lost the community’s trust.But, they are now trying to regain the community’s trust once more. The Justice department will offer “ technical assistance and training” to Pasco police in areas such as community policing and problem solving. In reality, this support is so vague that few people know what, if anything will actually change. For the federal government it is critical to offer technical assistance to local law enforcement. Eric M. Johnson states that  “the justice department will offer technical assistance and training to Pasco police in areas such as community policing and problem solving, fair and impartial policing”. To try to get the communities trust, the Justice Department will support in any way possible to solve a problem. Yet it is unclear if the Justice Department and Pasco Police really understand what the problem is or how they will solve it. In conclusion, it’s awesome that the Justice Department realizes it’s critical to rebuild the community’s trust. But, what exactly is it that they’re going to do, their going to solve problems without actually understanding the problem?
