Learn about Cleveland’s history of police department reform efforts over the past century in this in-person presentation & community forum.
The Accountability Work Group of the Cleveland Community Police Commission invites you to a special presentation and community forum: 100 Years of Police Reform in Cleveland: The Lessons We Haven’t Learned.
The issue of police reform in Cleveland is not a new one. In 1922, the Cleveland Foundation conducted a project titled, “Criminal Justice in Cleveland.” This massive undertaking resulted in nearly seven hundred pages of criminal justice reform analysis and recommendations.
The study was the first of its kind to survey the Cleveland Division of Police and recommend major changes to the way it operates. This started a pattern of reform attempts that have been met with limited success over the past century.
Join our Executive Director, Jason Goodrick, and our Senior Policy Analyst, Ryan Walker, as they walk you through Cleveland’s past history of police department reform efforts. The event will conclude with an open community forum on the future of police reform.
