Friday, April 24: Engaging the Community While Social Distancing   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "'Stay-at-home orders and social distancing restrictions have upended how police departments and sheriffs' offices engage with residents and carry out community policing. But many agencies are finding new ways to stay connected with their communities. Social media, virtual meetings, and some new variations on traditional approaches are allowing police to disseminate information about COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and other issues in the community. These efforts also serve to reassure residents that police remain visible and active in their communities. [W]e explore how various police departments are actively communicating and engaging with their communities.'"
