Interactions with Youth GPO

Date Filed: December 14, 2020

While not specifically mandated by the Consent Decree, the “Interactions with Youth” policy supports the Community and Problem-Oriented Policing values set forth in Paragraph 27 of the Consent Decree, requiring CDP to “develop and implement a comprehensive and integrated community and problem-oriented policing model in order to promote and strengthen partnerships within the community,” and specifically “including how to establish partnerships and actively engage civilians and community organizations, including youth, LGBT…communities.” 

The policy was reviewed by the Monitoring Team, the Department of Justice, and the Community Police Commission over many months, with the majority of substantive feedback incorporated into the final draft policy.
