The Consent Decree mandated that the Cleveland Division of Police integrate bias-free policing principles into its management, policies and procedures, job descriptions, recruitment, training, personnel evaluations, resource deployment, and accountability.
Officer training includes understanding the negative impact of racial or ethnic profiling, identifying personal bias, and ways to reduce the harmful impact of bias. Supervisors are also trained on how to identify bias when reviewing officer stops, arrests and use of force data.
The objective is to deliver police services equitably, respectfully and free of unlawful bias, and in a way that promotes broad community engagement and confidence in CDP, and without discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or gender identity. Our July conversation will review what has been done to accomplish this objective and what work still remains to build trust within the community.
