Departments participating in any of the programs may wish to initiate a custom research study with the New York University and UCLA joint public policy institute called BetaGov.
In these studies, departments work directly with research professionals to initiate a custom study they desire to undertake. Tools such as the use of surveys may be conducted of personnel, citizens and volunteers. The surveys attempt to capture sentiment before and after the application of the decals to gauge changes in how officers are aware of themselves and how the public sees them.
Why This Program Works
Police2Peace is a metrics-driven program that is creating a demonstrably positive change in the way communities and police departments see each other by shifting how officers are aware of themselves, and how the public sees them.
We seek to prove that we can positively impact police-citizen encounters using simple methods that reinforce positive values and strengthen officer resilience.
The program design draws on established social science work including Priming, Language-Augmented Cognition, Social Tuning, Procedural Justice, and Cognitive Resilience Training. Each of these techniques contributes to the successful introduction of PEACE OFFICER into the community’s law enforcement identity.
