I launched Black Police Daughter on Facebook and Twitter because I cannot comfortably sit back and watch the battles between the Police and the African American community. I like the Police because I am the daughter of a retired and now deceased Charlotte, NC, Policeman. Because I am black but also a policeman’s daughter I feel the Black and the Blue perspectives: rage, confusion, betrayal and despair. I created a platform to educate and inspire others to join me. I want Police reform and Community Policing in as many neighborhoods as possible.
I want Community Policing to become the norm in every low income neighborhood. When the people know the cop and the cop knows the people, trust and communication occur. More than this, I advocate for the embedding of Police in neighborhoods. This way the officers are truly a part of the community.
I invite you to follow me, join my page, read my blog posts here, watch my Facebook Live events and attend upcoming seminars that are planned. If each one of us does something to make our world better, it will happen.
