Strategic Plan of Action
To work toward achieving its mission, the JCPP adopts four main strategies:
- Training for community members about police procedures and laws in order to improve community members’ knowledge and understanding about what is expected of them
- Training for police officers, including the provision of information about cultural groups residing in their cities as well as Spanish language instruction
- Hiring personnel sensitive to the needs our diverse community, such as community liaisons who work at the police departments, multicultural cadets and/or multicultural community service officers
- The creation of a Multicultural Advisory Committee to serve as a communication bridge between the police departments and diverse community residents
