One of the most frequently asked questions when stopped by the police…

Why'd you stop me?

And we have the answer for both sides…

The Community

FACT

There is a violent confrontation between the police and a community member EVERY hour in our country.

This violence often stems from a lack of understanding and mistrust for the police. It is crucial that we educate our future leaders in the community about policing in order to promote positive interactions between community members and the police. Long Beach police officer, Jason Lehman, created this unique program to increase transparency in policing in an effort to eliminate these acts of violence.
