The ABLE Project is dedicated to bringing active bystandership training – and, more importantly, a culture of peer intervention – to law enforcement agencies across the country. The ABLE Corporate Advisory Group (CAG) brings together an exceptional and diverse group of men and women from companies across the country to help infuse ABLE with new and innovative ideas. It is the Corporate Advisory Group’s goal to:

  • Provide advice and guidance on how best to achieve ABLE’s five core missions.
  • Share innovations that have worked in the private sector and help apply those innovations to continuously improve the ABLE program.
  • Share innovations that have worked with ABLE with non-policing organizations to help promote active bystandership beyond law enforcement
  • Serve as liaisons to their companies to help drive pro bono projects, secure in-kind support, and identify synergies between ABLE on each company’s ongoing social sustainability efforts.
  • Serve as ambassadors for ABLE and active bystandership generally across the country.

The members of the ABLE Corporate Advisory Group all are committed to the power of active bystandership not only to reduce officer mistakes, prevent misconduct, and promote health and wellness, but also to serve as a vehicle for true cultural change. The Corporate Advisory Group believes teaching active bystandership (and creating a culture of peer intervention) is a key part of transforming not only the culture of policing, but of communities generally. The Corporate Advisory Group also believes that whatever policing may look like in the future, we will continue to need the skills, strategies, and tactics of active bystandership.
