On November 30, the Cleveland Community Police Commission received the draft CDP Equipment and Resource Plan. Given the Monitoring Team’s target date of December 19th to file the approved plan with the Court, the CPC decided to solicit feedback as quickly as it could. It did this in primarily in three ways: (1) by holding breakout sessions at its November 30th CPC Full Commission meeting; (2) through a targeted email query to community organizations; and (3) from Commissioners.
The community feedback in this document reflects all three sources, with the majority of the information stemming from community input during breakout sessions at its Full Commission meetings. At least two Commissioners participated in, helped facilitate, and take notes in each of the three small groups during the breakouts. The discussion was guided by the set of questions below. Additional information gathered, via email or from Commissioners, was categorized underneath and/or incorporated into these broad information areas. When a theme emerged, the CPC grouped the comments by that theme under each separate question. When a theme did not emerge, the CPC included a category of "Other" under each question.
