​​Last year, the White House and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) took notable steps towards discussing and sharing strategies for implementing the recommendations outlined by the task force to enhance public safety while building trust.

Police chiefs, sheriffs, mayors, community leaders and other law enforcement professionals, representing more than 40 cities, rolled up their sleeves to identify best practices and document implementation strategies to build community policing efforts and help make the streets of America safer.  The scope was aimed at building trust, reducing bias and helping law enforcement transform their agencies into departments that live up to the expectations of their communities.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) supports the recommendations of The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing​. This working document is designed to provide the community with the recommendations from Pillars I and II followed by CMPD’s response and pending action to fulfill the recommendations. Pillars III through VI are forthcoming, so please revisit the link soon.​​
