The Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board and the Office of Criminal Justice Services launched the Change Starts Here Campaign as a part of Ohio’s intensive agenda to improve community-police relations. Warhol & WALL ST, a Columbus-based lifestyle marketing and creative development company created the multi-pronged outreach and education campaign geared to raise awareness about community-police relations in Ohio.
As part of the overall scope of responsibility for the Ohio Collaborative, the public awareness campaign will:
Educate law enforcement on how to better interact with the community they serve by focusing on appropriate and effective programming especially those programs that promote positive educational interactions between law enforcement and youth in the community;
Educate the general public on strategies to improve community-police relations including how to appropriately interact with law enforcement and how law enforcement should appropriately interact with the public; and
Educate the community about the duties of law enforcement and the nature of their responsibilities in order to raise citizen’s awareness and understanding of law enforcement’s obligation to protect and strengthen the vital partnership between the community and law enforcement.
