Each volunteer Commissioner either lives or works in the City of Cleveland and are chosen by a selection panel to represent the many and diverse communities in Cleveland in the reform process:  

  • Faith-based organizations

  • Business/philanthropic community
  • Communities of color
  • Advocacy organizations
  • Academia
  • Youth and student organizations
  • Homeless
  • Those with mental illness

The Cleveland CPC also includes a representative of each of the following three police associations:

  • The Black Shield
  • Fraternal Order of Police (FOP); and 
  • The Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association (CPPA)
