Police Mediation

What Police Mediation is

The goal of the Greenville Community-Police Mediation Program is to build understanding and improve relationships between the City of Greenville Police Officers and citizens of the community. It is an alternative to the traditional complaint investigation process by the GPD’s Internal Affairs Department. By improving the relationship between the community and police, mediation helps make neighborhoods safer and stronger.

Why Police Mediation is Offered

While conducting research on how law enforcement agencies in other cities resolve citizen complaints, the GPD command staff discovered that cities like Denver, Pasadena, and New York have had considerable success with mediation. After learning that the cities with mediation programs reported increased levels of satisfaction for both complainants and officers compared with traditional complaint-handling processes, Chief Ken Miller decided to approach UMC about developing a similar program for Greenville. UMC researched how police departments and mediation centers were operating mediation programs and crafted one specifically for Greenville.
