Proposal for Improving Police Community Relations in Galesburg

Dear Mayor John Pritchard, recent events in your city have prompted me to submit this proposal to you for improving Police and community relations. You returned my phone call and as we discussed, I am submitting a proposal to enhance racial relationships between the Galesburg community members and the Galesburg Police Department.

As a consultant, I offer a service that will reduce racial tension in your community through a team building process. With the continued accusations of police racism, biases, and brutality it will benefit both the police department and the community to initiate a process that reduces any racial tension.

Enclosed you will find a proposal for the services that I offer that improve police and community relations. I will follow up with you in the next few days to ensure that you have received the proposal. I look forward to a talking with you and will entertain any questions that you may have at that time.

Sincerely,

Dr. Derrick L. Campbell, Ed.D.

Enclosure: Proposal

SITUATION APPRAISAL

You have begun a major transition with the intent of improving racial relationships between community residents and the Galesburg Police Department. In a recent article, Mayor John Pritchard stated, “People of different backgrounds got together to talk about a subject that’s very emotional in the hearts of everyone. I think the fact that we were meeting to talk about it was an excellent first step”. The next step is to develop a community relationships plan of action that will avoid any pitfalls associated with the events surrounding the Michael Brown incident and that will improve police and community relations.

Without this step, community members will believe that the mayor’s office and the Galesburg Police Department have no intention of addressing any concerns associated with alleged biases, alleged racial profiling, and alleged police brutality. This could result in a destructive pattern that includes citizens rioting, destroying property, destroying business, and defying laws designed to maintain a higher quality of life for the Galesburg community as well as people from other communities joining in to continue the destructive pattern. If this destructive pattern takes place it will cost the Galesburg government additional resources which may not become necessary if the proper step is implemented which includes improving police and community relations.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of this consulting assistance include, but are not limited to:

  • Reduce racial tension between the police department and the community

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L. Campbell the driving force behind Classroom Racism Exterminator is a dynamic figure and a constant source of motivation for us. He has a Bachelors of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology, Math Education, a Masters in Education Administration and also holds a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. Dr. Campbell is a well known personality throughout the nation. He has lectured at various events including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference and a lot of local churches. He is a personality well dedicated towards eliminating the plague of racism from our classrooms and helping every child recognize his/her true potential not the color of their skin. He realizes how a child would feel if he/she was made to think they are worthless human beings. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell is compassionate and related to the experiences and therefore this initiative is a constant and continual effort to eliminate racism manifested in us, completely from the classroom and from our society.
