It is vital to cultivate healing, inclusion, and empowerment when a bias-related crime occurs in the community. When a community is impacted, it is crucial for law enforcement and community members to collaborate in order to build bridges and initiate the healing process. The U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) provides resources and assistance for law enforcement agencies and communities in the prevention and investigation of hate and bias-related crimes.

The available COPS Office funded resources are organized below by audience and purpose:

Law Enforcement Training

General Community

Youth Specific

College Communities

  • A Bowling Green Legacy (film, 13:12) follows the actions of students working with administrators, law enforcement, and community members to forge new bonds after racially charged actions shake their community.

Other Partners

By working together, law enforcement and community members can build bridges for healing.
