Taking new steps to repair community relations
from Bambi Majumdar
Police departments around the country are coming up with innovative ways to repair and rebuild community relations. One police department in Mississippi, for instance, has started issuing vouchers instead of tickets for minor traffic infractions. In Oxford, local residents won't get a ticket if they are stopped for a busted tail light or headlight. Instead, they are handed a voucher to get it fixed. As a result, police in the town have teamed up with local businesses for free car light repairs. Called the "We Care Program," it is the police department's initiative to build better relations with the community that it serves.
