This presentation focuses on one challenging question:  “Would you rather be right, or would you rather be okay?” It benefits us all to hear the role that law enforcement plays in the personal story of those that we encounter. From gang members to community members, and from media coverage to roll call gossip circles; law enforcement faces a constant flow of judgement and accountability.  And so how do those individual contacts that you have with individuals add up over time? How do we understand that a passing encounter between a law enforcement officer and a civilian can be a disinteresting moment for the officer, while being a life-affecting encounter for the civilian? The contacts that the police make, can become as significant to them as any other life contacts that they have.  In fact, it can be eye-opening to view our community’s perception of us, through the lens of our own actions.  And it can be career-ending when one negative interaction is able to eclipse a lifetime of honor and hard work. We are aware that we face the challenges of the ubiquitous camera lenses and an often unsympathetic media, however, we can often lose sight of the purpose behind these over-zealous judgments upon the police.  We have to accept the reality that perception IS reality; even when it’s not.  And we have to work within the confines of this new reality: to continue to provide the necessary services that are expected of us; while making sure that we aren’t just “right”, but that we are also “okay.
