Teams

Our community safety teams

All team members are trained in violence interruption, deescalation, CPR and first aid including mental health first aide and Naloxon training for people overdosing from opioids.                

Cop Watch is a project born out of the love that we have for our people and a commitment to our survival and ability to thrive as a people. The practice of Cop Watch is rooted in community defense and was founded by the Black Panther Party in the 1960's.

 

Cop Watch aims to:

  1. Monitoring,

  2. Documenting and, 

  3. Deterring abusive policing.

Political Education & trainings

Cop Watch is a community defense tactic for monitoring, documenting and deterring abusive policing.  It is also a base-building and community empowerment strategy, because we use Cop Watch patrols and trainings to conduct political education, connect with affected communities to learn more about the realities of their experiences with the NYPD, and inspire involvement in the movement to end police violence.  One of the most directly rewarding aspects of our work is each time we see violent police interactions de-escalate as the result of our being present, organized and filming or hear of these experiences from people we’ve trained.
