CPC Accountability Work Group Report

September 2019

This report by the CPC Accountability Work Group examines police accountability in Cleveland beyond discipline and makes recommendations to enhance police practices.

This report was made possible through the commitment and support of community members from various experiences, belief systems, and cultures that shared invaluable insight, asked challenging questions, and were willing to engage in substantive discourse, at times heated, but always necessary to move the work forward.

Accountability is an expansive topic made manageable by the committee members who aided in streamlining ideas, while remaining focused on reflecting the voice of the community and the important role of every police officer as a collaborator. The CPC is thankful for the dedicated committee and community members that contributed to this report.
