Trust Talks

Trust Talks is a program that fosters open, honest communication between the Winston-Salem Police Department and the community.

Trust Talks was created in 2011, when the Winston-Salem Police Department (WSPD) approached the Winston-Salem Human Relations Department with a proposed partnership to foster positive dialogue and discussion within the community regarding bettering lines of communication and trust between the police officers and members of the community. Members of the Human Relations Department and the Human Relations Commission facilitate discussions that would yield the creation of trust and mutual understanding. Feedback and discussion points are transcribed and used by the WSPD personnel for training purposes.
