Building Trust with Procedural Justice

Procedural Justice is a national initiative that focuses on the way police and other legal authorities interact with the public. It is based on four principles: treating people with dignity and respect, giving citizens a voice during encounters, being neutral in decision-making, and conveying trustworthy motives.

Burns, Honda and Ngo have a combined total of more than 75 years of law enforcement experience in Santa Clara County. They will discuss how local police departments are using procedural justice to build trust with the community to ensure individuals are being treated fairly and without bias.
