Roving camera 11-14-19: What do you think the police could do to improve their relationship with the black community?

First of all, they need to become more trustworthy. Because of what’s happened with the police and the community, there’s no trust. They need to work on rebuilding trust. — Rosalyn Smith, Medical Assistant, Dorchester
Work together with the community. The approach of the police needs to change. We have to see each other as equals. Sometimes the community sees the police as enemies. — Lorenzo, Retired, Dorchester
Be more involved. I’d like to see them more visible, interacting with the people in the community. — Lisa Smith, Medical Records, Roxbury
Stop killing us. — John, Cook, Dorchester
More understanding. The police should understand why people do what they do. A lot of times they’re hard on people who aren’t even breaking the law. — Jaden, Student, Roxbury
They need to work on increasing their community outreach. — Alvin Whitlow, Educator, Mattapan
