Speak Lab / Solution
In having decided to focus on civilians as my source of intervention, I would like to repost something that was outlined in a previous blog:
“The goal is for interactions between police officers and community members to be:
- Comfortable for both parties
- Clear as to why they are happening
- As non-fatal as possible”
This requires, on part of the community member:
- To understand what wrong has been done
- To be able to effectively communicate with the officer
- To be non-aggressive in the face of being targeted, apprehended, etc.”
Having defined these requirements, I did the “If this, then that” exercise from the perspective of a community member.
-Website source for information on local laws, national laws, examples of how an interaction is supposed to go for specific interactions
-Outlining what a cop’s role is
What would make someone look at this? How do people get this information?
-Class that is taught in middle school. Learn laws local and national
-role play with a police officer
-coffee with an officer
-How to interact with officers handbook.
-with resources to learn your local laws
-who to call for what
-examples of scenarios
-discussions of how officers are trained
how would people receive this? how do we make sure they read it?
