The Monitoring Team has carefully reviewed the Proposed Training Curricula. The Team has determined that the Community Engagement and Problem-Solving Training provides sufficient guidance for officers to understand principles of community policing, communicate and engage with Cleveland residents, seek partnerships with community members and organizations, and develop collaborative solutions to public safety problems. The Bias-Free Policing Training provides sufficient guidance for CDP officers to understand forms of biased policing, the ways in which biased policing obstructs the goals of law enforcement, and how to minimize the occurrence of biased policing by identifying and managing moments where their decision-making may be susceptible to implicit bias. Both trainings include instruction on critical concepts such as procedural justice and legitimacy. The Monitoring Team therefore recommends that the Court approve CDP’s Proposed Training Curricula.
