If/when positions on the Commission become available, vacancies will be posted on the selection panel's website. Any inquiries about the application process should be directed to the selection panel.

How do I submit policy recommendations and/or feedback to the CPC?
To submit policy recommendations, you can either respond directly to a CPC survey posted on the Community Input  page of this website or send your recommendations to info@clecpc.org.

How can I learn about the CPC policy and community engagement deliverables and deadlines?
The CPC's deliverables are outlined in the Settlement Agreement (dba. the Consent Decree) between the City of Cleveland and the Department of Justice.  The Monitoring Team designed a collaborative workplan, called the Monitoring Plan, to coordinate the work and timely completion of deliverables between stakeholder groups mentioned in the Settlement Agreement (e.g. the CPC, the Mental Health Advisory Board, the Training Committee, the Cleveland Police Department, etc.).  Both the Settlement Agreement and the Monitoring Plan are accessible on the CPC's General Resources page.
