Nov. 6 - Chatham County Police Department Mandates Procedural Justice Training for All Officers

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

November 6, 2019 - The Chatham County Police Department is mandating procedural justice training for all of its officers in an effort to ensure that the principals of fairness, voice, transparency, and impartiality are part of all its interactions with the public.

The training is part of a program by the U.S. Department of Justice designed to help law enforcement agencies incorporate principals of 21st Century policing into their standard operating procedures. The Chatham County Police Department is built on the foundation of community policing, and 21st Century policing helps to make sure citizens are being served using the most modern and effective law enforcement protocols.

Chatham County Police Captains Dean Fagerstrom and Dan Flood attended U.S. Department of Justice training to enable them to provide procedural justice training for each Chatham County police officer. Two groups of officers have already received the training, and the final two groups will be trained in November. The sessions will focus on building trust among the officers’ co-workers at the department, and among the public at large.
