Fundraiser: Help us Raise the funds needed to start bridging the gap between Police and the Public.
Occupy Police will be branching out and switching our focus heavily toward opening up lines of communication between police and their communities using a centralized international social networking website that will make use of various social media outlets, daily group chats/conversations by locality, forums and (hopefully) actual community events. This website will be built by various techs over the next 4-6 months. Danny, the civilian OP Founder and the officers that make up OP are heavily behind this shift, we hope to lay the groundwork for a more community based policing system by opening up communication which can be beneficial in easing community tension, curbing brutality, promoting discretion, educating both police and the public while promoting the human side of those in Law Enforcement, that's just to name a few of the projected benefits, this will be a civilian/officer driven project largely unrelated to occupy, though OP will remain as it is, just, in the background. I hope you will all join us in this shift and get involved with us behind the scenes and in your community, this is something that all can be proud to participate in, and all are welcome to help with. -
In the meantime we have various expenses we need to cover before moving forward with the development of such a large central website, such as hosting, domain names, website developers who can build the plugins we need to make the website work, also, we need to buy the social networking software and 2 themes for testing. We don't usually need financial support but when we need it, we ask. We're setting an initial goal of $500 so we can cover some of the basics we've listed above and get started in early September. Please help us reach our goal so we can begin our work of bridging the gap together. Thanks as always for for supporting our work.
Danny, Founder of Occupy Police
Start Date 8/27 - End Date 9/15 - Goal $500
*A name has been chosen for this new project, and will be released via occupypolice.org once we've secured the domain names we need.
