Charleston Police Fund to announce new community initiative


The Charleston Police Fund is expected to announce a new initiative to enhance relationships between law enforcement and citizens. 

Officials say the CPF will announce "The Illumination Project" on Tuesday at 11 a.m. at City Hall. 

"The Illumination Project is an innovative and collaborative approach addressing opportunities to enhance relationships between police officers and citizens that will continually build trust, legitimacy, and dispel negative perceptions," read a statement by the CFD. "It will explore the natural tensions which exist between the important social values of public safety and civil liberties as well as develop actionable strategies rooted in procedural justice principals."

The project is made in cooperation with the City of Charleston, the Charleston Police Department and private donations.
