Troy Community Police Partnership
You’re Invited: On Tuesday May 16th, under the banner of A More Welcoming, Inclusive & Safer Troy, we will be convening A Community and Police Partnership dialogue.
Wm. Patrick Madden, Mayor of the City of Troy
“Over the past several years, following a number of high-profile incidents across the country involving police officers and members of minority communities, increasing attention has been focused on police and community relations. Both Chief DeWolf and I are committed to providing police services free of racial bias (implicit and intentional) and respectful of all members of the community.
“To that end, the Troy Police Department has been engaged with Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group for the past two years in a guided assessment of departmental operations identifying and implementing changes consistent with our vision for a service-oriented department. I am proud of the work the Department has recently undertaken and I look forward optimistically to its future.”
Daniel DeWolf, Chief of the Troy Police Department
“In recent years the TPD has and will continue to train our members in a variety of skills that provide our officers with the tools that are necessary for best outcomes. Some of those skills include crisis intervention training, de-escalation techniques, procedural justice and implicit bias training. Additionally, we have partnered with KJCG to help us be even better in our communication skills with the public and each other. The Troy Police Department takes pride in its service to you, but more importantly we want you to be proud of your police department.
“Having been a part of the Troy community the better part of my life, I have a deep fondness for Troy and its citizens. The Troy Police Department as a whole holds our neighbors, students, workers and visitors in high esteem and will always strive to serve you all with dignity, respect, kindness and compassion."
Frederick A. Miller, CEO of The Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group, Inc. (KJCG):
“I am Fred Miller, the CEO of The Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group, Inc. (KJCG). KJCG is a management consulting firm that has been based in downtown Troy for nearly 30 years. I am committed to and have been involved with helping Troy be a better place to work and live. This has included working with many organizations in Troy, such as Troy School District Board of Education, City of Troy, Rensselaer County Chamber of Commerce, The Arts Center of the Capital Region, and many others.
"For the past two years, KJCG has been doing pro bono work with the Troy Police Department—listening to the officers, identifying areas for enhancement, and facilitating education sessions. Our next step is to bring the community and members of the police together for dialogue about continuing to enhance our future together.”
