We do this by providing you with decals to add to the existing markings on your public safety vehicle which read “PEACE OFFICER”.
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 personnal, citizens and volunteers. Often the surveys attempt to capture sentiment before and after the application of the decals.
Why This Program Works
Communication is not about what we say. Instead, much of our communication is nonverbal. It’s in the subtleties of the tone of our voice, our expressions, and our body language. But most importantly it’s about where we’re coming from that allows us to effectively communicate with others.
How we think about things and how we speak are well studied by researchers. Police2Peace is using this science to prove that we can stimulate more meaningful interactions that bring communities together.
Research such as “Priming”, Language-Augmented Cognition and Social Tuning are examples of the well known effects of introducing PEACE OFFICER on public safety vehicles.
