The Dayton Human Relations Council (HRC) invites the community to explore its
recently launched community-police relations website at daytoncpr.org.
The Human Relations Council works with and on behalf of the Dayton City
Commission, Dayton Police Department and the community to facilitate positive
engagement and increased trust between law enforcement and neighborhoods
served, to support safe and inclusive communities.
The new site will enhance the visibility of these programs, promote progress on
various initiatives, and offer opportunities for the community to get involved and
stay connected. Programs highlighted include the Community Police Council (CPC),
the Community Initiative to Reduce Gun Violence (CIRGV), and the Citizens’
Appeals Board (CAB).
Visitors will benefit from easily accessible information including links to important
resources, access to an online Dayton Police Department complaint/commendation or
appeals form, the CIRGV client intake form, a community engagement toolkit for
hosting events, and related information from the 2017 Dayton Survey and
Community Police Relations (CPR) data report.
For more information or questions about daytoncpr.org, call the Human Relations
Council at 937-333-1413.
Established in 1962 by the Dayton City Commission, the Dayton Human Relations
Council provides civil rights enforcement; builds the capacity of minority-owned,
woman-owned and small disadvantaged businesses; and administers community
relations initiatives that promote and maintain peace, goodwill and harmony.
