Template for emailing the police department to ask about their action plan to protect against police brutality
View policedepartment.txt
Dear Chief [name],
My name is [name] and I am a resident of [city].
I’d like to start by commending you on the [program] the police department has implemented in [city]. I think this is a
fantastic step to maintain and improve trust between the police department and the community. I know Police Chief [name]
implemented it before his retirement, but I commend you on continuing the program. This, along with the support of the
Safe Haven law, indicate the PD’s willingness to decriminalize behaviors when those behaviors are truly able to be
addressed by compassion first.
