Public Trust Policing

03/31/13

Public trust policing is the use of police resources in a manner that includes the public's participation in the mission of public safety.

The purpose of public trust policing is to provide a higher level of public safety. It is incumbent upon law enforcement to recognize that without the full faith and cooperation of the public, the mission of public safety is severely impaired.

The process of public trust policing involves moving from what was generally known as a closed system to an inclusive and open system of public participation in the public safety mission.
