Urgent Priorities to Further Our Reform Efforts

The field of oversight of law enforcement has grown significantly in the last few years. With it, the needs of practitioners and communities looking to establish civilian oversight have also grown; the current national outcry for police reform has accelerated that growth rapidly. NACOLE is working hard to meet the demand but money is often a limiting factor. With your help, we could increase our capacity for outreach, advocacy, and education. We want to strengthen and expand oversight throughout the country, and give those tasked with doing this challenging and essential work the support and professional development they need to be strong, effective community-change agents. Your donation will directly support NACOLE’s top 3 priorities:

1. Advocacy for civilian oversight

2. Training of oversight professionals

3. Defining and defending oversight with state-of-the-field research and data

    2024 NACOLE Webinar Series (July)

    Using the Intersection of Policing & Social Justice to Strengthen Stakeholder Relationships

    On July 25, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. ET, NACOLE will welcome staff members of the Citizens Police Oversight Commission of Philadelphia to discuss how oversight entities can strengthen relationships with stakeholders by acknowledging a community's concerns and needs, beyond policing. The speakers will address leveraging pre-existing connections and credible messengers in the community and creating meaningful community engagement opportunities.

    The webinar is scheduled for one hour, followed by an optional 30-minute discussion immediately afterward. Only those who attend the live webinar will be able to join the discussion. The webinar will be recorded and available to registrants for three months.
