Educational Research Project

Required Funding:  $20,000

"Focused In" is a program of research and interaction, focused on learning the perceptions of teens and young adults about police officers.  From the teenage perspective we seek to learn the issues, facilitate productive dialogue and support positive interactions with police officers. 

Through the "Focused In" program we hope to effect positive change in police dialogue, interaction, and training as it relates to interacting with youth in communities across the country.
