CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Sept. 21, 2017) – The City of Charlotte will welcome representatives from the Police Foundation next month as the Foundation continues its work to finalize the critical incident review of CMPD’s response to the September 2016 demonstrations.


The Police Foundation will provide a presentation during the Oct. 2 City Council dinner briefing about the Foundation’s assessment. The representatives will also meet with a stakeholder group as well as other community leaders during their time in Charlotte.


The City of Charlotte publicly released the draft critical incident review on Tuesday. In the coming weeks, the Police Foundation will continue its work and will include additional information as the report is finalized.


“We look forward to continued insight from the Police Foundation,” said City Manager Marcus D. Jones. “I am proud of CMPD Chief Kerr Putney for his leadership and for inviting this objective assessment.”


The Police Foundation is an independent, non-partisan and non-membership organization dedicated to improving policing through innovation and science.
