​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​CMPD Transparency Workshops
Your Opportunity to Make a Difference

Communities across our nation have found that police departments work best when they work for the community, when they know the community, and when the community knows them.

The CMPD Transparency Workshops offer us the opportunity to begin improving the partnerships needed to better serve you and the community at large. The topics that we have selected for these workshops are the ones that drive the most questions during community meetings, rallies, and other conversations with citizens.

Our Transparency Workshops are 3-day events that give community members an inside understanding of CMPD’s processes, services, and operations. The mission of CMPD Transparency Workshop is to work towards strengthening community relationships, increasing the community understanding of police work, as well as equipping citizens to provide productive and meaningful input into how their police department functions. Each evening, attendees will participate in exercises that put them behind the desk of a captain, in front of a roll call as a sergeant, or behind the body worn camera of an officer. Along the way, participants will learn about:
  • Staffing and deployment of officers
  • Crime fighting and community engagement strategies
  • Arrest, search and use of force laws and policies
  • Accountability and investigation of police misconduct
The workshop will be led by knowledgeable CMPD officers whose passion is to convey ideas, information, and increase awareness of the police department’s mission while listening and getting input from our community.  To register for this workshop, ​please fill out the online registration form below​. A staff member will contact you with addition​​al information and to confirm your registration.
