Join a CPC Work Group

Take an active role in the police policy reform process by joining a work group. Work groups discuss issues and prepare reports and recommendations on policies and practices related to community and problem-oriented policing (CPOP), bias-free policing, and police transparency. Input from the community is crucial to ensuring these recommendations reflect an understanding of the values and priorities of Cleveland residents. Contact us if you would like more information about work groups and how to participate.

Active Work Groups

Work groups are active depending on current CPC activities. New members are always welcome!

Purpose: To collaborate with members of the community, local organizations, and key Consent Decree Stakeholders to develop proactive and responsive policy recommendations that informs Cleveland Division of Police (CDP) practices, while building trust.

About the Work Group
The CPC Accountability Work Group focuses on the larger theme of accountability by using law enforcement best practices nationwide to develop proactive and preventive policy recommendations designed to reduce officer misconduct locally in Cleveland. While discipline is an important aspect of accountability, it is a reactive measure occurring only after the misconduct.

The safety of both the community and police officers who serve the community is the primary concern of the recommendations developed by the work group. The goal of the recommendations is to improve current Cleveland Division of Police (CDP) policies and procedures to adequately reduce or eliminate the deficiency of “insufficient accountability” found by the Department of Justice in 2014.
