The Community Police Commission (CPC) was created to provide a vehicle for community input into the police reform process now underway as part of the settlement agreement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ). The CPC has been working over the last few months to develop policy recommendations in a number of areas, specifically bias-free policing, stops and detentions, in-car video recordings and use of force.
The CPC plays a key role in the reform efforts. The CPC’s charge is to seek community input and represent a broad range of community perspectives in their recommendations to the DOJ.
We will have the opportunity to voice our opinions, experiences and perceptions about the Police Department’s procedures relating to racial profiling, use of force and other key issues.
Our upcoming October 24th East Precinct Advisory Council (EastPAC) meeting will feature the CPC’s Acting Director, Betsy Graef, who will be looking for key community input on these issues.
Here is our chance to be heard, for your voice to become a policy recommendation! Please attend and talk about your experiences, perceptions and opinions.
