Our class project supports law enforcement
The Leadership Stockton class of 2016’s project is titled Police Encouragement and Community Engagement (P.E.A.C.E.). The project has two primary goals. First, we hope to show the Stockton Police Department that it is appreciated and respected in our community. Second, we want to help bridge the gap between the police and the community they serve. Now, more than ever, relations between police officers and community members is tense and fractured. Our class has decided to focus on outreach in an effort to restore trust and respect on all sides.
The first part of our project will be to do an aesthetic facelift on the Stockton Police Department building. We plan to power-wash the brick, paint the detailing, perform landscaping services, and purchase new signage. This is our way of saying “thank you” to the police officers who put their lives at risk to protect Stockton. The second part of our project is a series of community outreach events that will allow the community to interact with the police on a personal level. Many of these events are things that already happen in our community, such as Public Safety Day, but we, as a class, hope to increase the effectiveness of these events and encourage the community, especially at-risk youth, to participate and get to know their police officers.
