    One Man's Unique Approach To Unite Police With Their Community Is Making A Positive Impact Around The Nation


    Broomfield, CO, August 11, 2017 A growing divide exists in America between its citizens and the police officers who've sworn to protect them. Bridging that gap is paramount if officers are to be effective within their communities.

    Former deputy Darron Spencer addresses this intensifying crisis and shares his techniques for neutralizing negative perceptions in his new e-book, Humane Policing: How Perspectives Can Influence Our Performance.

    Drawing on his experience as a marine, corrections officer and sheriff's deputy, Spencer reveals his unique approach through real instances of how he implemented "humane policing” and why it worked.

    The book also exposes the nuances of police work and shows how self-control and understanding can mitigate potentially dangerous situations, with examples of how those upholding the law could alter their interactions with those suspected of breaking it.

    Written for law enforcement professionals as well as the general public, Humane Policing explores the changes that law enforcement needs to make, chronicles the experiences that shaped Spencer's personal perspective, and offers life-changing tools to help officers everywhere better serve their communities.

    Author Darron Spencer worked in a patrol division for just 20 months before a debilitating condition ended his career. As a deputy, Spencer oversaw more than 250 cases that resulted in 40 felony and 74 misdemeanor arrests. He assisted in four death investigations and booked in more than 150 pieces of evidence. He was awarded Deputy of the Year and received the Ribbon of Merit.

    He achieved tremendous success gaining cooperation from individuals, suspects and even career criminals while investigating cases. When Spencer's police work was cut short, he sought a new avenue to public service.

    Now he travels the country to meet with local police departments and share his approach to policing. His goal is to improve the relationships between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve and ultimately the public image of law enforcement officers on a national scale.

    NCCU to Examine Police Response to Low-Level Crime in Durham as Part of a National Study


    DURHAM, N.C. – North Carolina Central University (NCCU) has been chosen as one of six partners nationally to work with the Research Network on Misdemeanor Justice in New York to examine the impact police enforcement of lower-level criminal offenses.

    NCCU will gather and analyze data from the Durham area regarding arrests and eventual disposition of offenses such as shoplifting, fraud, petty theft, forgery and possession of small amounts of drugs. That information will be used to examine the degree to which law enforcement 8trends impact peception of public safety, law enforcement budgets, community/police relations and other issues.

    “For Durham to be selected as one of six sites from around the country for this research network is quite an honor,” said Lorraine Taylor, Ph.D., executive director for the Juvenile Justice Institute at NCCU. “This opportunity highlights our strong community partnerships and underscores the high quality research that is now underway in the Behavioral and Social Sciences here.”

    Based on a project by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice at The City University of New York, the network is funded by a $3.25 million, three-year grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. The five additional sites chosen from a total of 39 applicants are University of California, Los Angeles; University of Toledo; Seattle University; the University of Maryland; and the University of Missouri – St. Louis.

    ‘‘Joining the Research Network is an opportunity for Durham to contribute to the national discourse on how the justice system processes lower-level offenses and offenders,” said Robert A. Brown, Ph.D., chair of NCCU's Department of Criminal Justice. “One of our goals is to eventually expand this work throughout North Carolina.”

    Principal investigator Preeti Chauhan, Ph.D, of John Jay College, previously published a series of reports on disposition of misdemeanor offenses in New York City. Those reports have played a significant role in criminal justice reform efforts now underway there.

    “To see the work of the Misdemeanor Justice Project expand from New York City to six other jurisdictions is very exciting,” said Chauhan. “We are looking forward to replicating the New York model to these sites and believe the results will guide smarter criminal justice reform.”

    North Carolina Central University prepares students to succeed in the global marketplace. Selected as 2016 HBCU of the Year by HBCU Digest, NCCU offers flagship programs in the sciences, technology, nursing, education, law, business and the arts. Founded in 1910 as a liberal arts college for African-Americans, NCCU remains committed to diversity in higher education. Our alumni excel in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.

    MURDER CHOSE ME


    When murder came knocking on his door at 3 years old, Rod Demery answered and never looked back. In ID’s upcoming series MURDER CHOSE ME, retired and revered Shreveport homicide detective Rod Demery reflects on his 14 years as a homicide detective – a destiny he was drawn to after his own mother was murdered and case went unsolved….until HE solved it 35 years later.

    ABOUT ROD DEMERY
    Murder has been a part of Rod Demery’s life for a long as he can remember. When he was just 3 years old, his mother was murdered. Then, when Demery was in his twenties, his brother was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Instead of succumbing to the cycle, he resolved to do everything in his power not to repeat the mistakes of the past, and pursued a career in criminal justice. In his 14 years with the violent crimes unit, Demery solved or assisted in more than 250 homicide cases – solving each of the 60+ cases on which he was the lead detective.

    Demery’s impressive clearance rate, coupled with his fierce determination and no-holds-barred approach to get a confession, made him a legend in the department – but also a bit of an outsider. Friends, family, and love interests all found themselves playing second fiddle to his detective work. But Demery continues to be driven by his one mission in life: to find justice and resolution for the families of murder victims, just like his own. Demery retired from the Shreveport Police Department in March, 2016, and is currently serving as a special homicide investigator for the district attorney’s office.

    Demery is the author of the 2011 Amazon Kindle best-seller "Things My Daughters Need to Know: A Cop and Father's View of Sex, Relationships and Happiness," as well as "No Place For Race: Why We Need to Address Economic and Social Factors That Are Crushing Us Every Day," published in October 2013.

    Documentary Killing Them Safely/About Taser Related Deaths & Possible Police Misuse


    - Opens this November 27th -

    Presents

    KILLING THEM SAFELY

    (Formerly titled “Tom Swift & His Electric Rifle”)

    A FILM BY NICK BERARDINI

    Opens in Theaters and on VOD November 27th, 2015

    Hundreds of deaths. Zero oversight.

    KILLING THEM SAFELY



    In the early 2000s, brothers Tom and Rick Smith revolutionized policing by marketing the Taser to law enforcement agencies. This supposedly safe alternative to handguns was supposed to curb the use of deadly force—so why have over 500 people died from Taser-related injuries since?

    At a time when questions about police methods are at the forefront of the national dialogue, Killing Them Safely brings together startling archival footage and eye-opening interviews with experts on both sides of the debate to shed much-needed light on an urgent issue.

    Directed by Nick Berardini

    Produced by Glen Zipper & Ralph Zipper (Zipper Brother Films) of the Academy Award winning documentary Undefeated, also produced by Brock Williams, J. Goncalves and Nick Berardini.

    Activist Attorney Kamau Franklin Details Cop Watch Program To Bring Order To Chaos


    - How to Put Together a Community Cop-watch Program -

    "After again seeing the importance of video evidence in the recent police killing of Walter Scott, I was reminded that close to 18 years ago I participated in developing a community cop-watch program in Brooklyn with a grassroots organization I was a part of. At that time we helped reintroduce the tactic of cop-watches into community organizing. Loosely based on the Black Panther Party community patrols, this time with cameras not guns, we worked closely with a group named the Black Panther Collective that was active in Harlem conducting community cop-watches. In our group sista Latanya (last name withheld because she has a real job now) led the project at its inception and many of us played important roles. The cop-watch program we put together was extensive and its primary purpose was to prevent police abuse by being visible presence during police stops."

    Kamau has been a dedicated community activist and organizer for over twenty years, first in New York City and now based in the south. For 18 years he was a leading member of a national grassroots organization dedicated to the ideas of self-determination and Malcolm X, where he organized on various issues including youth organizing and development, police misconduct, and creating sustainable urban communities. Kamau has led and developed community cop-watch programs, freedom school programs for youth, large scale community gardens and alternatives to incarceration programs.

    NYC Police Reform Advocates Support 100 City “Justice for Trayvon” Visit by Family of Trayvon Martin


    - Local groups support call for DOJ civil rights charges
    Criticize Mayor Bloomberg’s opposition to legislation to ban racial profiling in NYC -


    Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) put out the following statement from spokesperson Priscilla Gonzalez in response to the family of Trayvon Martin and National Action Network holding a vigil outside of 1 Police Plaza on Saturday to demand justice and call on the Department of Justice to bring charges against George Zimmerman.

    “The verdict in the case to hold the killer of Trayvon Martin accountable shook our country’s sense of justice and has further exposed the dangers of racial profiling, which has no place in our society. While we demand justice for Trayvon, we also call for an end to discriminatory profiling everywhere, including New York City.

    “The New York City Council stood up for the rights of New Yorkers last month when it passed a strong ban against the police profiling of people solely based on their race, sexual orientation, immigration status and other protected categories that have nothing to do with criminal suspicion. But Mayor Bloomberg – instead of engaging in a thoughtful public dialogue – has opposed such civil rights protections using the worst kind of hyperbolic rhetoric about profiling and is now threatening to use his wealth and super PAC to intimidate council members.

    “We call on him to cease and desist with this irresponsible rhetoric and to meet with the victims of racial profiling and other types of discriminatory profiling before vetoing this bill if he truly is a mayor for all New Yorkers and not just those who don’t have to worry about being profiled.”

    ABOUT COMMUNITIES UNITED FOR POLICE REFORM
    Communities United for Police Reform is an unprecedented campaign to end discriminatory policing practices in New York, bringing together a movement of community members, lawyers, researchers and activists to work for change. The partners in this campaign come from all 5 boroughs, from all walks of life and represent many of those unfairly targeted the most by the NYPD. This groundbreaking campaign is fighting for reforms that will promote community safety while ensuring that the NYPD protects and serves all New Yorkers.
