I walked past Northampton police station the other day, and saw an officer helping a Black grandmother install a car seat for her grandchild. Yes, the car seat got correctly installed.

But perhaps something more happened. Perhaps the officer had one more contact with a Black person who was human and kind and loving toward her grandchild. Perhaps the grandmother saw an officer as someone other than a threat.

I hope the police reform commission takes these good things into account. The more the police are restricted to only dealing with major crimes and violent criminals, the more stereotypes will persist, and the more angry attitudes will persist. The more the public sees police only when the police are working in very tense, troubling situations, the less trust will be built between police and the public.
