The events surrounding the deaths of George Floyd, Duante Wright, Eric Garner, Rayshard Brooks, and others at the hands of law enforcement officers have made it infinitely clear that there is a significant void in the manner in which law enforcement views the community and how the community, in turn, view their law enforcement guardians. This, as well as countless complaints across the country of racial profiling, police abuse and misconduct, make it essential that community members be provided with a better understanding of how to successfully navigate the various interactions with law enforcement that may come into play, and that law enforcement obtain a better relationship with those they are sworn to serve.
It is with this in mind that the National Association of Black Law Enforcement Officers, Inc. (NABLEO) presents a program entitled “What To Do When Stopped By The Police” at the Sonesta White Plains Hotel, 66 Hale Avenue, White Plains, NY on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM. This program, hosted by the Westchester-Rockland Guardians Association and the Yonkers Guardians Association, is the national organization’s premier community education program directed towards their overall community-policing efforts, and will discuss such issues as citizen and police rights during police encounters, racial profiling, police-community relationship building, police abuse, misconduct, and accountability, and will briefly discuss pitfalls of various life decisions that may hinder youthful futures. Specifically, attendees will learn the tools to prevent police encounters from going bad.
The program is being presented free of charge and is open to all members of the general public, media, and law enforcement. Light refreshments will be served.
