Stop Hate and Respect Everyone- SHARE Tolerance Program wins Peace Officers Award for Innovation
The LASD Stop Hate and Respect Everyone (S.H.A.R.E.) Tolerance Program has won the "Excellence and Innovation" Award from the Peace Officers Assn. of Los Angeles County.
The S.H.A.R.E. Tolerance Program was developed by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Region I (northern L.A. County) personnel in an effort to positively impact the estimated 8,000 hate crimes occurring annually within Los Angeles County.
The program consists of a mobile learning platform (truck and trailer combination) with state of the art audio and visual equipment which can accommodate an audience of 26 and be delivered to virtually any venue.
S.H.A.R.E. participants are then delivered a thought provoking video and facilitated discussion which is aimed at garnering personal insight and introspection. To date thousands of people have benefited from this valuable message and since the program’s inception reported hate crimes have declined some 28%.
Sheriff Lee Baca said, “Deputy sheriffs and police officers have the public’s trust, they have leadership skills, and they care. S.H.A.R.E. Tolerance is a great example of our Department’s Core Values that each of us displays the courage to ‘stand against racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, and bigotry in all its forms.
See the S.H.A.R.E. Tolerance website including a 2-minute video, details about the program, facilitators, and photos:
