EPIC moments in New Orleans

This issue of PERF’s newsletter describes the EPIC initiative — Ethical Policing is Courageous — in New Orleans. The program is designed to encourage and enable officers to step in when another officer seems about to lose his temper or otherwise misbehave in a stressful encounter. The logic is for officers to help each other prevent career-threatening mistakes. Also called peer-intervention, the approach is based on research examining what distinguishes passive bystanders from active bystanders.
