Police Consortium Talks "Trust" with SPD

Posted by on Tue, Dec 11, 2012 at 2:15 PM

The words "community," "academic," and "research" were thrown around like Mardi Gras beads during today's 12:30 p.m. Consortium for a New Policing Paradigm press conference.

But it seems the only substantive step toward building a better Seattle Police Department that emerged from the day and a half mediation session between police officers, community leaders, academics, and researchers was a need for "trust."

That's the issue they identified as the most urgent: "Trust."

No new steps of action, no specifics, no timeline, just trust.

In all fairness, they did use the word "paradigm" right there in the title. Everyone knew what they were in for.

Body cameras for all cops. Earn my trust by letting me see you work.
