Facilitating community and police relationships
Joint Community Police Partnership (JCPP) works to enhance communication and understanding between diverse communities and law enforcement.
Hennepin County liaisons embedded in partner cities facilitate conversation between residents and law enforcement, which leads to stronger relationships, increased trust, and mutual understanding. These relationships ultimately improve the safety and livability of our communities. Our work includes:
- Elevating the voice of the community in relationship with police
- Supporting police departments’ efforts to understand and reflect their communities
- Educating residents about law enforcement activities
- Facilitating positive community-police interactions
Current partner cities are Bloomington, Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Edina, Hopkins, New Hope, Richfield, and Robbinsdale.
