Trust between law enforcement agencies and the people they protect and serve is essential in a democracy. It is key to the stability of our communities, the integrity of our criminal justice system, and the safe and effective delivery of policing services. Law enforcement agencies should proactively promote public trust by initiating positive non-enforcement activities to engage communities.

Implement new technologies, coupled with best practices and industry standards that give law enforcement an opportunity to fully engage and educate communities in a dialogue about their mutual expectations for transparency, accountability, and privacy.
