BUILDING TRUST PARTNERSHIP

The Building Trust Partnership is creating powerful cohorts of religious leaders achieving concrete results to strengthen relationships and build trust between communities and law enforcement.

A healthy relationship between police and the public is essential for strong, resilient, peaceful communities. Yet in communities across the United States, this relationship has been damaged and trust between the two eroded. As trusted moral authorities, religious leaders from all faith backgrounds are uniquely positioned to address these challenges and help build and strengthen the relationship between police and the communities they serve.

The Building Trust Partnership, a collaboration of the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego's Kroc School, the San Diego Organizing Project, and the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego, is providing knowledge, resources, and support to clergy of all faiths so that they can more effectively build trust between communities and police.
