With black people being murdered and brutalized by police, and police being targeted in retaliation, it is without a doubt a very heated and sided debate on what actions need to be taken to stop racial injustice and reinstate trust in law enforcement. In this episode, Drew and Adrian speak with LAPD Deputy Chief Emada Tingirides and Captain Giselle Espinoza on the expansion of the Community Safety Program – a program that launched in 2011 and focuses on community “peace” policing, where residents work alongside officers to reduce crime by developing sports, recreation, and other programs tailored specifically to their community; putting a heightened focus on tackling quality of life issues; and bridging communication and trust gaps between residents and the LAPD.
