Partnering with Community Police

Local police departments have a special role to play in improving a community’s health, from reducing violence and preventing crime to supporting strong community partnerships between neighborhoods, residents and community agencies. How can communities build effective partnerships with their local police departments? What are the challenges and how can these be addressed?

Our guest presenters, Kirk Smith, President and CEO of the Greater Flint Health Coalition, and City of Flint Police Officer Tanya Meeks, will talk about how the Flint Police Department is partnering with the community to improve health and safety for all.
