Grants of $12,000 to New York City nonprofit community-based organizations for programming that helps cultivate meaningful engagement between police officers and youth in communities across Manhattan and promotes mutual understanding and trust. Programs may focus on education, joint activities with the police, and community-wide events.

This initiative aims to help build long term, sustainable solutions to restoring police-community trust, and reflects a deep-seated belief that communities are and need to be an integral part of any proposed solution for improving police-community relations. Funds will be used for programming and purchasing noncapital materials for the proposed program.

Proposed programs should be innovative and reflect the communities in which activities will occur. Ideas should be youth-oriented and focus on one or more of the following themes:

1) Community Engagement: create a link between youth and police officers, helping officers better connect to the communities they police to promote open and honest dialogue and increase collaboration. Examples include hosting officer meet and greet, facilitating police-community dialogues.

2) Educational Training: implement general training for police officers on youth engagement, cultural sensitivity training to eliminate social, cultural, racial, psychological, biases in policing, or youth-focused conflict de-escalation training.

3) Trust Building: expose youth to the daily work of police officers and academy trainees to familiarize youth with nuances of daily policing work, protocol and policies.

4) Information Disclosure: involve youth in collecting and analyzing relevant data and identifying trends to improve transparency of policing work, as well as gathering opinions and feedback from community members.

5) Legal Services: provide professional legal services for youth and the public about the legal processes in policing related cases.

6) Leadership Skills: Hone leadership skills through mentorship programs established between youth and devoted police officers.

7) Other service programs that do not fall within the above-mentioned scope but generally serves the purpose of this award based on the “Improving Police-Community Relations” report are accepted upon prior discussion with the Manhattan Borough President’s Office.
