Urban Peace Academy

The Urban Peace Academy develops teams of trained professionals working to prevent and reduce violence. Our rigorous instruction program presents effective strategies for forming relationships and trust between residents and officers to ensure neighborhood safety. This work has never more been more important, as recent events highlight the need to bridge the gap between law enforcement and communities of color.
