Creating Organizational Transparency in Your Campus Police/Public Safety Agency
Course Description: Campus police and public safety organizations need to be viewed as open, trustworthy, fair, and impartial to establish meaningful and positive relationships—and partnerships—with the communities they serve. This can only be accomplished if those organizations can successfully develop transparency in policies, procedures, processes, and practices. This session will review tangible strategies designed to assist agencies in developing transparency through policy development; designing and implementing branding and communications strategies; promoting accountability, reward and recognition structures, and analyzing best practices for establishing transparency using a Procedural Justice framework.
Some of the key topics that will be covered include:
- Developing positive branding and marketing strategies that highlight community-caretaking and procedural justice philosophies;
- Reviewing the impact of leadership on organizational culture and identity;
- Establishing an accountability structure that accumulates trust and respect;
- Exploring diversity as a key component in developing organizational transparency;
- Promulgating policies, procedures, and practices that are endorsed by campus communities through their active collaboration in the development process; and
- Exploring best practice community engagement and outreach methodologies.
