Improving Police & Community Relations
Since 2018, The Knox Project has assisted over 20,000 minority youth in Chicago & surrounding suburbs. We have conversed with over 2,000 community organizers, more than 50 minority workgroups, 150 city, and state elected officials, and numerous spokesmen from the Chicago police departments.
We aim to educate and spread awareness with mutual respect between young adults and law enforcement. We seek to help Chicago’s minority teens and young adults for better decision-making. Our team prioritizes educating young minorities on the dangers of drugs, gangs, bullying, untreated mental health, and the significance of police in a civil society.
We have interviewed over 1,500 Chicago police officers, and has had sessions, workgroups, and/or off duty conversations with approximately 130 to date.
By collaborating with officers, we strive to educate willing officers on many things like staying current and understanding minority youth culture, the latest slang, community concerns, recommendations, and more.
Our work, data, and information collected from our law enforcement participants are strictly confidential and not disclosed for public, media, news, or any other type of consumption. We ensure our integrity, safeguard our reputation, and maintain the privacy of all willing participating officers.
