NJ Office of the Attorney General - Police-Community Trust
Safer Communities - AmeriCorps Drew University Community Policing Initiative AmeriCorps members will be assigned to work with the NJ Office of the Attorney General, in a collaborative effort with the NJ Office of Community Justice and the Division of Criminal Justice (Prosecutors Supervision & Training Bureau) to assist with the planning and execution of activities and events that will strengthen law enforcement and community relationships on a statewide basis.  Also, members will be deployed by the Prosecutors Supervision & Training Bureau to assist several of the County Prosecutors Offices (through Community Outreach Liaisons employed by those respective Offices) to address specific and identified needs of enhancing community engagement efforts in those locations.   The Drew University Community Policing Initiative AmeriCorps is a comprehensive program designed to improve law enforcement and community relations by promoting greater understanding, communication, and positive interaction between them. The Police-Community Trust, Understanding and Cooperation AmeriCorps service opportunity works under the basic premise that law enforcement’s ability to do its duty protecting people is jeopardized by questions about their credibility. Bridging any gaps between community leaders and local law enforcement enhances the ability of police to carry out their duties.
