At our last meeting, the Chief of the Bluffton Police Department, Stephanie Price, gave a presentation about an initiative called 21st Century Policing which is designed to study the link between procedural justice and legitimacy and trust within the community. Chief Price discussed the 6 major elements to the 21st Century Policing model--1) Building Trust and Legitimacy, 2) Policy and Oversight, 3) Technology and Social Media, 4) Community Policing and Crime Reduction, 5) Training and Education, and 6) Officer Wellness and Safety. 
Prior to moving to the Lowcountry, Chief Price worked at the Savannah Police Department as Assistant Chief where she led the Administrative Bureau which supervised the Budget, Traffic, Training, Special Events, Mounted Patrol, K-9 Fleet, Recruitment and Special Operation Divisions. Before moving to Savannah, she spent almost 20 years with the Kansas City Police Department. Chief Price has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Park University and a Master's Degree in Business Administration from Benedictine University. 
Thank you very much to Chief Price for joining us for an early morning meeting!
