NEW YORK - The NYPD has unveiled new training protocols aimed at improving the department's relationship with the community. 

Mayor Bill de Blasio released details about the seven-step program that he feels will help keep officers mindful of their language and attitude toward civilians. 

The guidelines are simple and utilize common sense. The points include introducing yourself, keeping an open mind and being patient. Cops are also being encouraged to relate with people of different backgrounds. 

Officials hope the protocol will help rebuild trust and mend relations that were strained by the controversial stop-and-frisk program.
