Have the police made an effort to rebuild the community’s trust? The police department have made an effort and have made it their priority to gain the trust back. The police are trying to make good of their history of violence recently by a training procedure the police department added to regain the community’s trust back.
The main focus for police is to gain back the community’s trust it once had. According to the article Pasco police to get community police training after fatally shooting farmworkers, “It is absolutely critical that the police department do all it can to strengthen police and community relations to rebuild the communities trust” (Johnson). This statement demonstrates that the police are working to gain back the community’s trust.
An action the police departments have taken is to add a new training procedure. According to Justice department aims to rebuild trust in police with a community engagement initiative, “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 and procedural justice”. The police are trying to make an effort to show the public it is putting in the effort to gain its communities trust.
The police department of pasco are trying to gain its trust back from that community and so far they are doing a great job so far. The effort shown by the department show how much the community’s trust is worth to them. I believe the police will regain the trust of its community. The department of Pasco has gained my trust.
