The 48 police chiefs that comprise the municipal, campus, state and environmental police departments of Rhode Island, collectively represented by the Rhode Island Police Chiefs' Association, is announcing the signing of the Twenty for 2020 Campaign, an effort to ensure the public's faith in its police departments by redoubling a statewide focus on training, transparency, communication and human rights.
“I am proud to advocate and commit to the 20 for 2020 Campaign. It is essential that we as police officers work aggressively and quickly in order to rebuild the trust with our community. The twenty initiatives described are a starting point of commitment to maintain and build upon relationships with our community partners including an open and honest dialogue.”
