Creating Positive Policing Narratives for Countering Violent Extremism

Abstract: 

Creating Positive Policing Narratives for Countering Violent Extremism aims to provide international police services insight into how to draft and disseminate narratives that highlight their ability to protect their community from harm and help to create a safe and secure environment.

In this book, the authors guide police in the development of a language of protection, the introduction of an alternative vocabulary that can then be adopted by the community as they describe the activities of their police services. The strategy is to shift the language about the police, with a caveat; the police activities and operations must first be compliant with the highest level of professionalism possible.
