Serving and Protecting Those Who Served and Protected Us

Community policing has historically been centered on collaborations with neighborhood and business groups. More recently, law enforcement has seen the value of expanding those relationships to the many “communities” within our larger community. Those special populations look to the police, the most visible form of government, to provide leadership in their communities and to better serve and protect them. One of the most promising and certainly deserving practices that helps achieve this is to better serve military veterans in crisis.
