This piece profiles Vera's new 3-volume guidebook series that outlines sucessful community policing practices to help police build trust in a diversifying nation. It contains quotes from Vera's Caitlin Gokey, who edited the volumes, as well as from a law enforcement official who contributed to the guidebooks. 

QUOTE: "The country is diversifying rapidly, and despite their best efforts, police officers often struggle to find ways to build trust with the communities they serve," says Vera Institute senior program associate Caitlin Gokey, who co-edited the series. "The Department of Justice also recognized this need, and we partnered with them to try to fill the gap between policy and practice."
