Yet, training alone cannot ensure public safety, as outlined in the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing final report . Law enforcement is a difficult and stressful career that takes a toll on an officer’s physical and mental health, and without residents’ collaboration, everyone is less safe.

Building trust between the police and public can be accomplished through programs available through the county, such as the Joint Community Police Partnership and the Embedded Social Worker program , which several surrounding suburban cities have already adopted. Other ways to enhance trust and transparency could be to create a public-facing dashboard of aggregated monthly incident statistics and annual traffic stop data, similar to the City of Roseville’s data sharing initiative .
