The Project: The Attorney General has asked the 21 County Prosecutors to organize quarterly public events to discuss issues relevant to community policing in the 21st century (the “21/21 Community Policing Project”). The goal of the project is to strengthen relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve – and to address areas of concern before conflicts arise. Starting in spring 2018, each of the County Prosecutors will be responsible for organizing one meeting each on the following topics:
- Spring 2018 (Apr-Jun) – Investigations of Officer-Involved Shootings View Spring Events
- Summer 2018 (Jun-Aug) – Opioids
- Fall 2018 (Sep-Nov) – Immigration Enforcement
- Winter 2018-19 (Dec-Feb) – Bias Crimes
The events will include presentations and/or discussions on the quarterly topic. Attendees will include law enforcement officers and stakeholders from civil rights and religious communities.
