The Marietta Police Department is proud to announce a gathering on June 5th designed to create open dialogue between the citizens of Marietta and their police department. 

“Procedural Justice” is often defined as: The idea of fairness in the processes that are used to resolve disputes and allocate resources.

“Procedural Justice for Communities” centers around the way your local police department and their officers interact with the public they have taken an oath to protect and serve. The interactions law enforcement members have with citizens often shape the public’s view of their police department.

For over a year, the Marietta Police Department has been using the COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services) program to train Procedural Justice to our officers and command staff. Our training has centered around four pillars of Procedural Justice: Fairness, Impartiality, Giving a Voice and Transparency. The next stage of implementing the curriculum is for members of our staff to meet with members from the community. We want to ensure citizens voices are heard and they receive the transparent policing they deserve.

Please consider signing up for our three hour workshop. The workshop will provide an opportunity for local law enforcement and local community members to come together and interact while learning about the application of procedural justice. Skilled facilitators will work to create a mutual learning environment that will embrace open discussion between law enforcement and residents; building the foundation for mutual trust.

The workshop will be held on June 5th, 2017 from 6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. in the Marietta High School Seminar Room. There is no cost to attend, however, space is limited. Please click the link below and sign up today if you would like to participate.

This is your opportunity to share your thoughts and ensure we are operating through a procedurally just process.
