In 2012, the Community Police Council (CPC) worked with Wright State University’s Center for Urban and Public Affairs to develop an action plan to improve relationships and increase community safety for all. The CPC action plan set three goals based on feedback collected from the community. The goals support the work of the CPC and the Community Initiative to Reduce Gun Violence (CIRGV).
The plan was updated in 2014 to reflect emerging issues and to incorporate innovate strategies to guide the CPC’s work over the next 3 years.
It is the CPC’s hope that strategies identified in these action plans will help build on the progress that has been made over the past few years, as we seek to build bridges that create common ground, mutual understanding, and lead to new solutions to old problems. The ultimate goals are to improve community-police relations, provide greater public safety, and improve the quality of life throughout Dayton’s different communities.
Through these plans, the CPC commits to ensuring that Dayton remains unified around a common goal of safety, fairness, respect, and justice.
