COMMENTARY: Why police should be trained and prepared to protect children from trauma when their parents are arrested
Each year, one in 14 children in the U.S. experiences the incarceration of a parent, with many more experiencing a parent’s arrest. Children of color are disproportionately impacted due to demonstrated systemic racism in our criminal legal system. It is estimated that between 22% and 41% of these children were present at the time of arrest.
We know firsthand from our experiences as a program provider for children and families and a former police chief that seeing your mom or dad arrested can have traumatic effects on children. Research suggests that children who witness an arrest are twice as likely to have emotional and behavioral challenges compared to those who do not. It can also lead to a negative impression of police that can last well into adulthood, perpetuating strained community-police relations.
