S3, E4 – Opening The Lines Of Communication Between Law Enforcement & The Community Through Sports

On episode 31 of On the Job With PORAC, PORAC President Brian Marvel and Vice President Damon Kurtz sit down with Sean Sheppard of the nonprofit organization Embrace. One of Embrace’s programs is called Game Changer, which allows community members, law enforcement, members of the judicial system, and elected officials to become better educated about one another and create a change in perception while attending a sporting event. Sheppard explains the concept behind its creation and how it’s brought together the community and law enforcement.
