Evolving Philadelphia Police and Community Relations from Fragility to Forgiveness with the Utilization of the A-B-C Model: An Essential but Not Elementary Task

Tuesday, October 6th 2020

10:00 AM - 12:30 PM


Please take our post-webinar survey.

Dr. Jacqueline Bailey-Davis developed the A-B-C Model as a preamble to addressing social issues and beyond.  She will define and discuss the inclusive components of the model and explain the significance of its use in developing strategies to bridge gaps between the Philadelphia police and community.  The infinitesimal components of the A-B-C Model is essential but not elementary to implement, as all components are required for intended outcomes; the absence of one of more component(s) can be disastrous.  

Also featured after the workshop will be artist conversations from Day 1 of our Art as Resistance Gallery, with art elevating the perspectives of individuals, families and communities impacted by mass incarceration


Workshop Facilitated by

Jacqueline Bailey-Davis, PhD

Staff Inspector, Philadelphia Police Department

Dr. Jacqueline L. Bailey-Davis is a native Philadelphian who recently earned a Doctor of Public Administration Degree from West Chester University while also serving as a full-time Staff Inspector with the Philadelphia Police Department. Her dissertation entitled, “An Analysis of Complaints against Police in Philadelphia: A Case for Social Equity and Collaborative Governance in Police Reform,” underscored  racial disparities of complainants when sustaining allegations against officers in a Department which has operated in an autonomous, vertical, and closed system of investigations for more than two centuries. During her 23-year tenure in the Philadelphia Police Department, Bailey-Davis rose through the rank in file while working in the patrol, investigations, and training bureaus. In 2015, former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey appointed Bailey-Davis to oversee the Department of Justice Collaborative Reform Initiative, which garnered national praise in police reform.

In addition to her police duties, Bailey-Davis simultaneously served a combined 12 years in academia as an adjunct and criminal justice coordinator and behavioral health administrator at Alvernia University and Community College of Philadelphia, respectively. She is the recipient of various local, national, and distinguished awards from the Philadelphia Police Department, Alvernia University (Adjunct of the Year), The National Liberty Museum Awards of Valor (Individual Meritorious Community Service), and the University of Cincinnati (Distinguished Alumni). Lastly, as a crusader for social justice and member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, Bailey-Davis has honored her life-long public service commitment via philanthropy by providing underserved Philadelphians and Cincinnatians with educational and vocational endowments to level the playing field of access and opportunity.
