Community-based Initiatives

Beaver County Community and Law Enforcement Coalition

Comprised of community leaders and law enforcement officials from all over Beaver County, the Beaver County Community and Law Enforcement Coalition develops education and engagement campaigns to build trust and improve relations between the community and the police. Formed in August 2016 as a response to high-profile police shootings around the U.S. involving unarmed African American males, BCCLEC is committed to its mission to ease tension between community and police by enhancing communication, renewing trust, addressing safety concerns, and eliminating assumptions, and elusive and ambiguous behavior.
