Watch for Me NC Action Planning Workshops are an opportunity to bring members of local coalitions together to begin developing a road map to implement the Watch for Me program over the next several months. This forum allows for a cross-pollination of strategies between new and returning partner communities to foster a broader sense of collaboration and peer support while equipping communities with tools and resources needed to get started. Time is devoted for small groups to work on developing the plan.

Each Watch for Me NC community is required to attend a 6-hour workshop. 

Every community is expected to send at least four representatives (including the lead agency) to an action planning workshop. These representatives should include at least one law enforcement officer and may also include coalition members from planning, engineering, community development, or other similar agency department; public health or injury prevention organization; school, school district, or local advocacy group, cycling club, bicycle and pedestrian advisory commission, or other departments or organizations who will be involved in  local Watch for Me NC programs.

By attending this workshop, partner communities will:

  • Receive tools, tips, and resources to help develop a plan of action to conduct educational and enforcement activities.
  • Understand the importance of establishing a strong network of coalition members to aid in outreach efforts and leverage enforcement strategies.
  • Develop ideas to launch a successful and impactful kickoff event.
  • Name three resources that can aid in reaching the public and maintaining a presence of WFM messages in the media.
  • Explain how data can be used to refine or focus education and enforcement activities.
  • Build a relationship with the HSRC team and other coalitions.

The Action Planning Workshops are in addition to, and separate from, the training dedicated to law enforcement, and is an opportunity to work with your local coalition members in other divisions to help leverage your Watch for Me efforts.

Lunch will be provided during the workshop.

Please complete a registration for each individual attending so that we can plan accordingly. Please do not group registrations.
