The Cleveland Community Police Commission, as per the Consent Decree, is providing recommendations for the disciplinary guidelines GPO 1.1.11.
Our recommendations, highlighting parameters that are insufficiently addressed or not addressed at all, were informed by research of best practices and example disciplinary policies from police departments around the nation. Input also was sought and received from the community in two ways. Various groups and organizations such as SURJ (Standing Up for Racial Justice) and the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) provided written assessments, and community members from across the City of Cleveland have volunteered their feedback during break-out discussions and public comment periods at Commission meetings.
