FORT MYERS, Fla. — This afternoon officers got a peek into what a black person might think during an encounter with police.
Officers from Cape Coral, Charlotte County, and Sanibel came to Lee County to talk about training. Just like last week’s meeting with other agencies, each group walked away with new insight.
“The thing that goes through my mind is how do I survive this,” W. Earl Sparrow Jr. said.
Agencies from all over southwest Florida met with the NAACP. They covered racial profiling, de-escalation and the fear that exists during tense situations.
