Program Description

Byrne JAG funds support the Office of the Independent Monitor's Youth Outreach Parent Track Project. Project Parent Track has three primary goals: (1) to improve youth’s confidence and ability to have positive interactions with law enforcement by giving parents tools to support their children, including training on proper police practice, common laws related to youth and constitutional rights; (2) to increase parental trust of law enforcement; and (3) to increase Denver police officers’ understanding of community concerns through facilitated dialogue with parents. The Youth Outreach Project serves over 1,000 youth, community members, and officers per year.
