Inspired by Berkeley Copwatch's UC Berkeley class and motivated by daily requests for support and training, WeCopwatch has created a standardized training curriculum called Copwatch College that is based on years of hands-on experience, covering five modules that are typically taught over the span of 3-4 days.
COPWatch college videos
We are currently creating a series of Copwatch / Know Your Rights videos to accompany our online curriculum and to be used during trainings. In the spirit of Jacob Crawford's 2004 These Streets are Watching, these videos will be a mix between interviews, trainings, and in the street police interactions.
These Streets are Watching 2004
- 5x Online Classes
- 30x Training Videos: 2-4 minutes each
- 4-6 Incident Case Study Videos: 10 minutes each
We interview several active and former law enforcement officials to speak on people's rights when stopped by or while monitoring the police. We also interview officers on their training to gain a better understanding of their mind set when confronted by them in the streets.
Copwatch Training Videos
We use a mix of unreleased Know Your Rights Trainings that were filmed during production for WeCopwatch's documentary "Copwatch", which can be seen on Amazon Prime Video
Police Training Videos
We utilize police training videos that cover a variety of subjects and topic material relevant to our curriculum.
We use several high profile police killings and demonstrations in our course. We process available evidence and reconstruct incidents using Police and Copwatch videos, and dispatch recordings. These incidents serve as case studies and examples that are incorporated and revisited throughout the Copwatch College Curriculum.
