Town police offer citizens chance to reverse roles
The Piedmont Dispute Resolution Center and Warrenton police created "See It in A Different Light,” offered Thursday, July 15.
Citizens in July will have an opportunity to participate in a role reversal program with the Warrenton Police Department.
Created in partnership between the Piedmont Dispute Resolution Center, the program will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 15, in the police station at 333 Carriage House Lane.
“See It in A Different Light” seeks to educate the public, through interactive role reversal exercises about the complex roles that police officers must assume and the skills they must master to ensure public and personal safety while doing their jobs. Participants will learn conflict resolution strategies available to mitigate escalation during a heated interaction.
The program is free. Registration will be open from June 11 until July 2.
