Police and Community Together (PACT) was created in 2017. PACT represents a committed and diverse group of community members and advocates that have partnered with SLOPD to affect positive social change through dialogue, education and understanding. The police department has officers and staff that serve as liaisons to each of the community groups. All work together to develop training that is important for police officers and staff to experience and in turn, training for the community groups to learn about policing.
