The mission of the newly established Office of Community Engagement (OCE) is to provide resources, contacts and services to the department and our community, and to strengthen community relations through transparent communication and proactive engagement.
We focus in four main areas: awareness, education, outreach and engagement.
This is done through:
- The development of youth programing;
- Establishing partnerships that create opportunities for prevention and redirection;
- The RECAP (Rebuilding Every Community Around Peace) initiative to interrupt and stop cycles of violence; human trafficking outreach and awareness education;
- Outreach and education as it relates to the precursors of terrorism (See Something Say Something);
- Establishing community wide relationships with private and public sector partners, as well as with diverse interfaith groups.
Program opportunities are created to reach people at three different places in their lives:
- before they enter the life of crime;
- after they are in the life and decide they want out;
- or once they are incarcerated, they are given reentry tools to make better choices once they are released.
Help us accomplish our vision of to have the most progressive, engaged and enlightened partnerships between law enforcement and the community in America and to build the strongest, most engaged community of trust.
