Commander Paula Veach
As many of you know, I have the good fortune of teaching at Arizona State University in addition to my role as your precinct Commander. Recently, a graduate student working on his capstone project asked me to describe the “community programs” in my precinct. Having examined community policing from the academic and practical perspective, I shared with him my findings. You see, the Phoenix Police Department does not treat community policing as a “program,” but rather as a culture and a relationship. Community inclusion and engagement is the historical practice of this organization and of our precinct. We use it as a verb and not a noun. Although the national conversation may suggest that law enforcement does not understand community needs, and may propose that the relationship between community and police is broken, I would argue that all relationships, public and private, require mutual effort to remain healthy; mutual effort necessitates shared sacrifice and shared respect from each member of the alliance. I also think my professional situation is unique. I am honored to serve in a precinct where my community acts as partners with the police. You have assumed ownership of your neighborhoods and have actively engaged in efforts to help us make the Mountain View Precinct a safe place to live, worship, work, and go to school. And, it’s more than this. It has not been an easy year for policing. Yet, I have witnessed your great support in moments when we needed it, as police officers. You remembered that we are human first and you stood with us when things were tough. .
