The Respect Booklet is the product of police and teens working together and communicating with one another about how their perspectives and experiences shape their reactions. This resource addresses many issues and questions that teens may have about the law and interactions that they might have with police. Originally printed in 1996, the booklet was updated in 2003, 2009 and 2015. The year-long process to update the guide brought Kirkland Police Officers and Kirkland Youth Council members together to work side by side. Several meetings took place where both groups conversed and compared notes on situations they have encountered and had questions about. Out of these meetings came the topics that are included in the new version of the booklet; dating violence, parties, cell phone laws, harassment/bullying, on-line safety, and more.
