The ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM is designed to strengthenthe relationships between Law Enforcement, Communit CBO’s, Community, Young Adults, and Youth in the WesternAddition/ Fillmore Area of San Francisco, California as a Pilot Program. Then into every Police District in San Francisco.
The Program seeks to:
Take the Humanistic Approach. Everybody is a Human Being before they are anything else. It doesn’t matter what color you are, race, nationality, job title, etc. We Bleed the same color Blood, no matter what we do in life. We are Human Beings first. Bring back the RESPECT FACTORS into our community. Show Respect for Authority Figures in our community, and Authority Figures showing Respect for the community. (people that live in the community) Trust is a Factor also.
Get everybody, “ On One Accord ”. Common Ground/Same Page. Working together for one Common Goal? Collaborations between Law Enforcement and Community. Bring Peace and Harmony to the Community, by working together as one. Inter- Acting Activities between Law Enforcement and Community. ACCOUNTABILITY. Everybody will be held ACCOUNTABLE for their ACTIONS. Working through Anger Management Issues in our community with referrals to Mental Health CBO’s in the community.
WHY the PROGRAM ?:
The Engagement Program is put together to Eliminate some of the ACTIONS that have taken place in cities such as Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland, between Law Enforcement, Community, Young Adults, and Youth. Engagement Program will deal with INTERVENTION, PREVENTION, not AFTERVENTION. Why do something have to happen, before we deal with it? AFTERVENTION!!!. If we deal with INTERVENTION and PREVENTION, there is no need for AFTERVENTION.
Agreed or Dis-Agreed?
Coming Together “ On One Accord ”, we want to DISMISS this MYTH, “ This is what happen, When you call the Cops, Get’s your Rights Violated, or You Get Shot ”.
