“When it comes to policing, good training saves lives, period. You get out what you put in.” These words were spoken by Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson in a 2023 press conference discussing training that helped Dallas police reduce violent crime. I came across this quote as part of research for this year's grant proposals that Lynda Schwartz, NCPI’s Executive Director, is currently devoting every waking moment to preparing and submitting ahead of some very short deadlines. Although that particular grant proposal has been long submitted, this quote has stuck with me.
