What are the police department’s goals for the program?
The most direct benefit of mediation is that it will help us ensure that one interaction doesn’t result in an overall negative perception of the Greenville Police Department or of law enforcement as a whole. Ultimately, our goal is to strengthen and improve community-police relationships one case at a time. Additionally, our hope is that through mediation, we can build a foundation of trust and respect, and that those positive interactions will have a ripple effect throughout our community and beyond.
