Effort is to build relationships with youth, not to "deal" with youth, but to actually engage them and ideally have those relationships have positive results in the street.
We can document all day and there need to be different actions. You create a program and adaptive leaders go back and look at what isn't working and hold truths of people it serves.
This is why I'm asking about specialized crisis intervention teams that include mental health professionals and social workers.
Does the De-Escalation training change and adjust overtime based on the nuances in society that have become more aggressive and biased toward black and brown people OR is it a standard static program
Seriously, There are sincere efforts internally to meet community expectations. The education component extends to degrees in Child Law-topics of school to prison pipeline, alternatives to arrest etc.
i want to hear from our police chief... not one from another city. ask chief cook what he meant by protestors should go to Englewood
police didn't know the route and the organizers actually guided traffic. we didn't want any police there because 5 days before they assaulted a black man
What does a degree have to do with the institutional racism plaguing our cities? Does a degree stop the police from being racist or stop them from causing racialized harm? No. Stop that elitist bs.
Yes, this is why we need to cut money from police budget and put them towards social services and other key programs. Can someone please address this?
What kind of emotional support are officers getting especially BIPOC given all the trauma that was just talked about?
Per Rachel Rosner's comment: why can't we move police dollars into these kinds of social services? See my comment about the differential between Wilmette and Evanston.
Mayor, In which if these discussions will you include representatives of the CNP and Evanston for Black Lives?
How much money do our SRO's earn? Hint.... It's a lot.... To police children.
This isn't just about individual officers its also about a larger collective
How about officers arguing back and forth online and we talking about de-escalation?!- Can there be some ownership for this from last night.
no officer talked down the officer that wouldn't leave Trent Hunt alone
Why was an officer taking pictures of nearby license plates and warning the "children" they were being recorded while they were painting in front of the police station?
no one wants police to serve all social services... obviously we have seen it doesn't work at all
Are they going to address EPD practices specifically? The Trent Hunt story?
Thank you Chief Davis for highlighting the increased social service situations that police officers are facing and the need for increased training in this area.
ahhh hell naw!!!! This is the performative stuff that folx are talking about we appreciate all of this AND!!!!
What is police policy for putting children in a cell at HQ?
Who sits on the standards boards? It looks like mostly officers and elected officials like mayors. Is there any community involvement on those standards boards?
Obviously, nothing is perfect, but there are legitimate efforts and sincere work put in by the officers.
Thank you for doing this. And for making efforts to be transparent and to improve from within.

Beaches, including Lighthouse, Clark St., Lee St. and South Boulevard, are open for swimming! Please make sure to follow proper safety protocols, keep six feet away from others, and wear a face covering when entering the beach and interacting with staff. ow.ly/ka8S50An7n0 ... See MoreSee Less
Forget it. Between the overcrowding, the unenforced (perhaps unenforceable) rules, the truncated swimming season, and the physical shrinking of the beaches, I'm not buying a token this season, for the first time in probably 25 years.
Shut them down
How come when I was riding my bicycle this morning there were a lot of people on the Greenwood Street beach. I thought it was closed. There were people climbing over the fences and boulders to get to the beach.
