Inland Congregations United for Change (ICUC) will be hosting our Hiring, Equipment, Accountability, Training (HEAT) table meeting with the Riverside Police Department (RPD) to discuss the (E) component of HEAT (which is Equipment). This will be the third of a program of six (6) monthly tables bringing together Cops, Community, and Clergy to discuss issues of public safety. All having a common goal of bridging the gap between community and public safety.
HEAT is our change theory in relation transforming the public safety system into one everybody can trust. Under the HEAT Framework, We believe, the equipment and tactics used to provide public safety have an opportunity to be reimagined with a commitment to ensuring that personal security is provided for all in ways that don’t dehumanize or terrorize the public. Also, these two goals are not mutually exclusive but can be reached in partnership as we elevate the use of best practices to reduce community harm and officer injury. Because trust is central to building a relationship, a shared understanding around what produces safety and provides security is inescapable.

We will have the Riverside's Police Chief Sergio Diaz and other public safety agents that specialize in the RPD equipment and tactics to listen to the community concerns and explain their equipment (i.e. bodycams). Our goal is to present our research and recommendation on building trust, listen to the stakeholders around equipment and tactics, and have them hear from the community, and take the next step forward in implementing the community concerns within the RPD.
