Get Involved. District of Columbia Police Department. Active Bystander for Law Enforcement Training

ABLE Training

This week, Mayor Bowser observed the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Active Bystander for Law Enforcement (ABLE) training that is required for all MPD sworn members. For years, MPD has trained members on the requirement and duty to intervene. In 2021, as part of its annual professional development training, MPD formally adopted this new national best practice training program that prepares officers to successfully intervene to prevent harm and to create a law enforcement culture that supports peer intervention.

The Georgetown Law Innovative Policing Program, partnering with global law firm Sheppard Mullin, created the ABLE training, which employs evidence-based practices to give officers the tools and skills they need to perform an intervention on a fellow officer, a subordinate, or even a superior officer. ABLE is unique and uses lessons from other industries like aviation, medicine, and college campuses.

Dear Colleagues,
 
Thank you ever so much for signing on to the CSO Advocacy Letter ahead of the G2O Finance and Health Ministers Meeting on October 29, 2021.
 
Please note that the letter has been published on our website, and will be shared on our various social media platforms, we encourage you to kindly share the joint advocacy letter - calling for a coordinated, global response to the pandemic, as we ask world leaders to commit to the following urgent actions

          sEnsure at least 70% of people in every income category in every country are fully vaccinated
             by sharing doses at scale, releasing production slots, and supporting non-exclusive knowledge
             and technology sharing measures; 
 
           sIncrease multi-year financing for the pandemic response and preparedness in
             low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to match the scale of need;
 
           sReallocation of Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) to support the fight against the 
             pandemic in LMICs;

           sStrengthen global leadership and accountability..
