“Unity in the Community” initiative was created as a plan of action to build upon the continuation of community responses throughout the nation to unite local police departments and city-elected officials with their community into one collective voice. The initiative is a pro-active step Takoma Park is taking to create and strengthen relationships between the Takoma Park Police Department, elected city-officials and community residents by expanding routine opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds to come together through community dialogue, relationship-building events and sustained partnerships.
