Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy in collaboration with Fight Crime: Invest in Kids Police Training Institute (PTI) has launched an exciting new endeavor to help police and the communities they serve work together to build trust and make communities safer places to work and live
This opportunity is for high school and college students (ages 15-22) from Inland Empire who would like to actively participate in this groundbreaking event.
We have 10-15 slots available each day for this learning opportunity, "Connecting Youth, Communities and Law Enforcement (CYCLE)" which is purposed with educating communities and law enforcement officers on how to better interact with each other. The work done on both sides will improve relationships between law enforcement and community members, and build trust thus making communities safer places to live, play and work.
In recent years, Ferguson, Baton Rouge, Dallas, and other police-related incidents have sparked a national dialogue on how police officers interact with youth-especially youth of color. In an effort to improve interactions between young people and police, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids' Police Training Institute aims to teach police officers how to deescalate conflict effectively and have safe, positive interactions with at-risk young people. By coaching police officers and academy recruits, the Police Training Institute will improve public safety, cut violence, and decrease negative experiences for youth that can contribute to long-term health problems.
There is no cost for registration and meals will be provided.
