VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Cultural Diversity in Policing ID: 02-VIDEO-571e6bfad0464a1d42a7f523 A discussion about cultural diversity in policing with Seattle Assistant Police Chief Perry Tarrant RECORDED ON May 04, 2016 COPYRIGHT 02-VIDEO-571e6bfad0464a1d42a7f523 Transcript 2016 SPEAKER Speakers: Assistant Chief Perry Tarrant Assistant Chief Perry Tarrant TAGS cultural, diversity, policing, phoenix, bridge MODERATOR: Chief Tarrant, when I think of Seattle, I feel like I'm kind of in that corner, I see a picture of a very vibrant, ethnically diverse, really an international city, not dissimilar from many big cities but there's a uniqueness to Seattle. We chatted about that. You have a unique challenge around that. You have an international district. You've created some programs that really kind of help you get a better sense, a pulse of what's happening in that district. Could you address those please? ASSISTANT CHIEF PERRY TARRANT: Sure, absolutely. Let me begin by first saying that I'm kind of wearing two hats today. I'm representing the city of Seattle as well as NOBLEE which is the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives. NOBLEE has had a very long relationship with the University of Phoenix so I want to thank the University of Phoenix for that and its continued support as well as being our host this morning. Also I would like to thank the city of Phoenix as well for their hospitality that's been extended and the opportunity to be with you guys this morning. Spider mentioned it during my intervention that my original plan of being in law enforcement was five years. How that came about was a lot of the contacts I had initially or had with the law enforcement when I was going to the university wasn't really positive. I went home kind of in a battle with my roommate. I had a discussion and the conversation kind of went along the lines of you can continue to vent about it or you can do something about it. A passing conversation I had just very shortly after that with my father and he says well if you're going to do something about it the only way you're going to change the organization is from the inside. That's how I got into law enforcement. There was never a plan. It was never part of my overall goal and it was only going to take me five years to change all of law enforcement. (Laughter) Thirty-five years later. Let me kind of talk about the city and how I got there. Seattle is absolutely an international city. Not only is it known for its tourism but you have Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia, Yahoo, Starbucks all drawing a very international and very diverse population to that city. On top of that you have a Department of Justice investigation which found a series of patterns and facts occurring within the Seattle Police Department and the Seattle Police Department is now under federal monitoring which means the Police Chief and the Mayor report to a federal judge as far as policing goes in the city of Seattle. The challenge that presents is when your department is first hit with that consent decree from the federal court saying you shall do certain things the tradition of how policing historically occurred stops. Now you have an instance where you have a very large police force and a very large metropolitan city deciding not to have contact with the public. That is a huge challenge. My boss gets to the city of Seattle and taking a page out of Chief White's book immediately addresses her command staff. What occurs in that process is she eliminates all of her command staff and then hand picks her new team. That's how I got to Seattle. © University of Phoenix 2016 Cultural Diversity in Policing Page 1 VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Hitting the ground in Seattle under those circumstances number one at the federal monitoring and number two coming from the outside into an organization that has been somewhat demotivated about doing policing and on top of that having to work with her leadership team to change the overall culture of that organization and kind of reinvent community policing. We started off with looking at how we were doing everything. Everything from recruiting. When I started and you looked at the recruitment materials it was really guys driving fast, shooting guns and rolling around grabbing. We changed the format of our recruiting materials and started addressing the kind of folks we wanted coming in particularly during this time in our community. We showed that video internally and it was not very well received because it wasn't what folks who grew up doing police work thought police work should be. We showed that same video externally to the community and it was a lot of footage that already existed and they did not know those were things that were already going on in the city of Seattle. It was very positively received externally. We kind of had that mixed bag initially but that's still the video that we push out there as part of our recruiting materials. Because Seattle is such a very diverse community we have a very large Chinatown and a continuously growing Asian population. Chinatown is now surrounded by what's called the International District which has an even greater diverse population. Just outside of the International District is another neighborhood and everybody in Seattle is very proud of their neighborhoods but that neighborhood is called Columbia City where there are over 70 different languages spoken. You try and mix that into an effort toward moving down the line on community policing and it absolutely presents a series of challenges. Every precinct has a community policing team assigned to it which basically reports directly to that policing commander in a decentralized fashion on all of our different community policing initiatives. On top of that to reach some of those more difficult, some of those other market areas what we did was the city of Seattle brought in internally several liaisons. We specifically hired liaisons to work with the East African community, with the Asian community, with the Norwegian community that all make up the city of Seattle. The sole intent there was, and you hear Cerelyn say a few minutes ago, and that was to have those conversations and to continuously engage the community on what they expected from their police. The cops are now getting back out and engaging with that whole new framework and surrounding that by an understanding of what the community wants and more importantly what the community expects. The larger part of that on the international district portion of that is trying to blend folks outside of their neighborhood where there is a very, very tight cultural pride in being defined as a neighborhood. The challenge doing police work in that environment really isn't that great. The larger part of our challenge is having that conversation and kind of moving those along. We've taken community policing and we actually call it micro community policing specific to those neighborhoods and those communities. The officers that are assigned to those specific communities either work through the liaison or an interpreter on a regular basis where we have very specific programs for those very specific neighborhoods all intended to build the relationships and improve the relationships with the Seattle Police Department. All of this is going on and being reported back to the federal judge on a quarterly basis because that is the requirement. Seattle is about two and a half years into almost three years into an incent decree which requires the city of Seattle's Police Department to do several things on a list that the federal judge approves and then after the last item is signed off we have a federal mantra team that still lives with us for the next two years to make sure we don't backslide. I will tell you right now within the organization at the speed at which change is happening within Seattle, the folks who were initially kind of stepping back and depolicing are back out there on the front lines having those conversations. The conversations that I have on a routine basis when I attend role calls and briefings with our troops are every single contact is a transaction. You're either making a deposit or you're making a withdrawal. I'll go back to the example that Chief Williams of Cleveland mentioned earlier and that is when we have events and there are events virtually every day in the city of Seattle, we don't let the officers stand around. We have the expectation that they will engage and have those conversations because that is absolutely the opportunity to make those deposits. Ultimately there will be a time where we have to make a withdrawal and those withdrawals when they occur are sometimes pretty significant. © University of Phoenix 2016 Cultural Diversity in Policing Page 2 VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Some of the other things we have internally are the most vocal bloggers and folks who are doing a lot of posting kind of on the opposition side of Seattle PD. We hired them and brought them inside. As Cerelyn mentioned, sometimes what you have to do is make that concerted effort to demystify policing for the community so they understand. I will tell you that since we've hired those folks those are absolutely some of our greatest proponents of what we do and they're also the most vocal. What we get is we actually have taken our Media Relations Department and kind of bolstered that with civilians that we brought from the community to respond to and anticipate questions that we were most likely to get from the community. We've all been on this side of policing for a very long time and don't necessarily always anticipate the questions that folks have out in the community. The intent was to bring some folks in on a pretty regular basis and this is in addition to all of our advisory committees but bring them in on staff using the mechanisms that they were using previously to communicate to a much broader platform but doing that on our behalf, helping us get our message out there. It’s working very, very well. [End of Audio] © University of Phoenix 2016 Cultural Diversity in Policing Page 3
VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Police/Community Relations ID: 02-VIDEO-571e6b33dd7d621158375a95 A discussion about police/community relations with Cleveland Police Chief Calvin D. Williams RECORDED ON May 04, 2016 COPYRIGHT 02-VIDEO-571e6b33dd7d621158375a95 Transcript 2016 SPEAKER Speakers: Chief Calvin Williams Chief Calvin D. Williams TAGS police, community, relations, phoenix, bridge MODERATOR: Chief Williams, can you tell us about your Peace Makers Alliance that you created? CHIEF CALVIN WILLIAMS: Yes sir, of course. I would definitely like to thank Chief Garner and the city of Phoenix for having us here, the University of Phoenix. This is an excellent opportunity for us to get together and kind of exchange ideas. Chief White basically told you everything that's being done out there with policing. I mean he hit the nail on the head on just about every point as far as police community relations. But we have an organization in Cleveland that's called the Peace Makers Alliance. It was started by a former Cleveland Browns legend. For those of you that go back that far, Reggie Rucker played wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns. He got involved with an organization that wanted to do something with some of our formerly incarcerated individuals, some individuals from the community that aren't the people that you would see in a meeting like this but that he knew could move the bar as far as police community relations in the city of Cleveland. He got those young men and women together and he turned the Cleveland Peace Makers Alliance. What this organization does, they work hand in hand with the Police Department and the community during high profile events, during community events, during times in the city when we need that so-called buffer between the Police Department and the community because things have happened. These individuals have what is commonly referred to as street credibility. They've been out there, so to speak, in the game. They know the players. They live in these neighborhoods and they definitely have a genuine desire to help make things better in our city. We applaud them for that so I utilize them often. Every officer involved shooting that we have in the city of Cleveland, there are members of the Peace Makers alliance on scene working with myself and our officers to make sure that the factual, timely, correct information is given to the community because rumors start and they spread quickly. If you don't get the correct information out there then you spend most of your time trying to dispel those rumors. We work with our Peace Makers Alliance members and we give them that information so they can tweet and snapchat, Facebook, even face to face put that information out there to the community. We had an incident that happened in Cleveland earlier this year. Our officers were fired upon. They returned fire. Nobody was struck. They arrested the individual. We taped off an area that was the crime scene. Investigators came out to process the crime scene, to talk to the officers and talk to the arrested individual. Peace Makers Alliance guys were on the scene with us and a huge, huge boisterous group from the community because the word had spread that members of the division of police had shot an individual in the head, killed them and he was lying in the back yard dead and that's why we taped off this area. There was no one shot. There was no one even hurt on that scene. © University of Phoenix 2016 Police/Community Relations Page 1 VIDEO TRANSCRIPT We were able to have the members of the Peace Makers Alliance along with some of our people from the community relations to actually come out and start walking through and talking to the crowd to give them the factual information on what transpired that day. That calmed things down tremendously for us. We utilize Peace Makers Alliance guys on a daily basis. The Mayor of the city of Cleveland also started a One CLE hashtag during some troubled times we had earlier this year, this spring. We got the Peace Makers Alliance along with our clergy, along with our street outreach workers, along with our activists in the community and basically got all of them onboard to this One CLE. We are One Cleveland. My colleagues at the end knew that during the recent NBA finals that was sort of a slogan for the Cavaliers; we're all in. We turned this One CLE. We're all in this together as one. (Laughter) MALE SPEAKER: Thank you Chief. Thank you for reminding me of Cleveland. MODERATOR: I like the rivalry. I'm glad you guys were separated. (Laughter) CHIEF CALVIN WILLIAMS: Well the Mayor turned this One CLE. We got all of our community stakeholders together and when the announcement was made in a real high profile criminal trial we had activists, police officers, clergy, community people all out together walking the streets of Cleveland, talking to groups in the streets of Cleveland and urging people to respect the One CLE, to come together as one Cleveland to make sure that we get to the root of the issues that we have and we get to them in a positive way. We had a positive outcome from that. [End of Audio] © University of Phoenix 2016 Police/Community Relations Page 2
CLASSMATE POST 1: I agree in protesting peacefully. but when people start acting out and plain stupid how is this supporting their belief. I grew up in Baltimore I love Baltimore that my city. But when the live black matter protested against police ok. I take that fight the police they are your problem. But when you start burning normal people buisness and houses how two wrong do one good i don't get it. Fight the police don't take out on other. Because of their skin color. CLASSMATE POST 2: I will start the discussion off by saying I think the biggest issue dealing with diversity and policing now is the events of the police killings of African American men. I think that the police departments within these certain cities has made the communities of African Americans feel uneasy and brought on a lack of distrust. Communities across America has formed a movement of Black Lives Matter and this in return has brought on problems as far as racism with the police departments against African Americans period.
