Recent events in our country have opened the door to a national dialogue on race relations and law enforcement. In an effort to begin this important dialogue at the local level, the Sheriff's Office started a new initiative--Improving Modern Police And Community Trust (I.M.P.A.C.T.).
The committee meets once a month to openly discuss issues and ways to increase the trust between police and the community.
Who is Involved?:
I.M.P.A.C.T. is comprised of a diverse group of individuals from the local community including faith-based, educational individuals, business community, government officials, and law enforcement.
Through continuous, open, and productive dialogue between Police and the Community the goal of I.M.P.A.C.T. is to:
- Foster trust and respect for law enforcement
- Encourage community involvement and support
- Identify community-based solutions to problems associated with implicit bias
