Proper Police Training for Atlanta Police Dpt.

This campaign will raise money for more adequate materials, training and resources for the Atlanta Police Department, which will keep all of its officers compliant with the law and all of its citizens safe. 

Law enforcement has a responsibility to ensure the safety of citizens. The Atlanta Police Department needs to not only update their policies and procedures, but they need more tools to conduct multicultural training/competency assessments and resilience training. Annual multicultural training and competency assessments coupled with hands on learning to apply to real life situations will begin to tackle the issue of targeting African Americans and other people of color . Resilience training will combat the high rates of anxiety related symptoms and PTSD that officers suffer from. This type of training  will not only focus on how to properly assess situations to determine if it is dangerous but techniques to properly de-escalate encounters and exhausting all alternatives before using force. These are a couple of initiatives that are crucial steps towards ending the excessive force and violence against African Americans and other POC.
