  1. I think LEAP is a great idea in terms of providing students with experential experience and providing independent, external oversight of police actions. It provides a measure of accountability and fostering greater trust and perhaps, reconciliation between the community, more genrally, and racialized indivudals, more specifically and the police agencies.
