Law Enforcement Training Critical to Restoring Public Trust
Summary: The decline in the public perception of law enforcement is caused by a combination of a unending news and social media. Police departments, which already generate high levels of emotion and controversy, are particularly susceptible to negative and imprecise content on social media. Outcomes include increasing legal actions against police departments, at taxpayer expense.
This new reality means police must constantly improve their training. Agencies must be diligent to mitigate risk of litigation. Finally, police need to boost transparency to give citizens a window into what police are doing and why. In short, better training, reduced risk, and increased transparency are a good start to law enforcement winning back the public’s trust in the digital age.
