The Cleveland Community Police Commission is the second of its kind in the nation.

Emerging out of citizen advocacy and a consent decree with the U.S. Department of Justice and the City of Cleveland announced on May 26, 2015, the Cleveland Community Police Commission is made up of ten civilian representatives and one representative each from the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, the Fraternal Order of Police and the Black Shield.

The Cleveland CPC has the broad mandate to:

  • Develop and make recommendations for comprehensive police reform. This includes assessing police policies, procedures, practices and culture; improving community problem-oriented policing, bias-free and constitutional policing; and providing police transparency

  • Represent community voice and interests and develop recommendations that reflect an understanding of the values and priorities of Cleveland residents

  • Publicly report to the City and community and provide transparency on police department reforms

The Cleveland CPC believes the pathway to transforming the Cleveland Division of Police and building legitimacy and transparency must be paved with community input and trust, and a belief in the dignity of human life.
