The New Blue
Public outcry for reform. Significant media scrutiny. A growing political divide. Lack of safety for citizens and police. The stakes are higher than ever to restore trust in the police departments that protect and serve thousands of communities across the U.S. Partnering with StoneTurn, Silverseal has assembled a world-class team―foremost experts in police reform, the design and implementation of effective compliance programs, and data analytics―to assist in bringing lasting change at this critical juncture.
Repairing the Relationship Between Police Departments and their Communities
- Constructive conversations are needed. An open dialog and cooperation among community members, police leaders and elected officials is essential to develop a new framework for public safety efforts.
- Assessing and improving our nation’s police departments requires evaluating each community’s unique needs, risks, capabilities, and culture.
- Each community will need a customized, cost-effective approach to achieve meaningful change.
- The desire to respond quickly should be balanced with an understanding of the issues, the correct approach, and the ability to maintain or develop the appropriate controls and processes.
- An in-depth knowledge of policing practices, similar compliance reviews, federal and local laws, change management, data analytics, and collaboration and communication with diverse constituencies will be required to deliver positive results.
