The Winston-Salem Police Department and the Winston-Salem Human Relations Department hosted a Trust Talks Forum between representatives of the Winston-Salem Police Department and citizens at the Little Creek Community Center on May 19, 2016. The trust talk allowed citizens and police to discuss such issues as community safety, stereotypes, perceptions, trust, and other areas of concern. The Winston-Salem Police Department has been participating in trust talks since 2011 as a way to foster communication between law enforcement and the community.
On July 25th, several members of the Winston-Salem Police Department’s Community Resouce Unit sponsored a night out to the WS Dash game at BB&T Ballpark. By the looks of the photos, a good time was had by all! This event is one of many that the Community Resouces Unit facilitates throughout the year to foster realtionships in our city.
One of the Police Department’s 2015 Domestic Violence Awareness initiatives was the creation of its own Silent Witnesses. Silent Witnesses are life size wooden silhouettes that represent someone who lost their life to domestic violence.
