In policing, it’s important to ensure practice and policy are in alignment. When you operate in the grey area, you risk focusing on the outcomes rather than the process. The process – and how you treat those you interact with – is how you build trust within your community. When your authority is questioned, do you react with contempt, or with humility and respect?
Join Sergeant (Ret.) Jason Lehman of the non-profit organization “Why’d You Stop Me?” to explore how to prevent the attitude of those you interact with from leading your decisions. We’ll also cover the importance of the duty to intercede (beyond physical force) as well as discuss what “contempt of cop” looks like at your agency.
