Community Engagement Assessment Plan

September, 2017

This Community Engagement Assessment Plan (CEA Plan), which is required in compliance with ¶17c of the Consent Decree, reflects research garnered from the Seattle Community Police Commission Assessment Plan, relevant literature searches for best practices, suggestions from the Cleveland CPC staff, the Community Engagement Committee and Commissioners. With the hiring of a Policy Analyst and a second Community Engagement Coordinator, the Cleveland CPC anticipates additional edits and fine tuning of the plan as the CPC becomes more adept at processing qualitative data.

The CEA Plan supports an evidence-based tracking of improvements in the pattern and practice of excessive use of force and unconstitutional policing and community-police relations that lead to building trust. Tool design, data collection and analysis will be used to track change and develop effective strategic measurements overtime.
