With support from the Liberty Hill Foundation and input from a focus group of police officers, this course brought together police officers and youth, creating positive engagement and dialogue around law enforcement.
Integration with the Mayor’s Youth Council helped the program facilitate trust and understanding between youth and police. The course also explored career pathways to law enforcement, connecting youth to relevant City programs. SPARK funding covered development and implementation of a curriculum. A total of 34 youth and 10 law enforcement officers participated in the program.
