Opportunities exist to have discussions around the topic after screenings to get local communities of officers engaging in further dialogue. It is vital to work with local community members, influencers', organizations, staples, activist, and agencies of each city because every place is naturally unique, with different needs and expectations. The community engagement events hosted include a screening of one or more of the films in the Middlemen series if it is set up over the course of a few days or weeks.
The goal is to invite the local artist, musicians, entrepreneurs, and law enforcement professionals to attend in addition to community members of all ages. Festivities include screening in the least and on a broader spectrum, panel discussions, music, art auctions, giveaways, and food. Panels are pushing the dialogue further than the screening alone. Topics discussed around police and community relationships, Compstat, and police violence is presented with a designated host.
We hope to dissuade policies that encourage enforcing low-level offense and offer other options to tackle minor issues, any form of a performance metrics for these arrests/summons and start a conversation about supporting whistle-blowers who refuse to conlude in behaviors they find unfair.
