SPEAK. BE HEARD. BE CONSIDERED.
The Dayton Community-Police Council (CPC) is comprised of representatives of neighborhoods, businesses, churches, community agencies, youth groups, law enforcement and local government. The Dayton CPC was created after City Commissioner Joey Williams in November 2011 called for members of the community and the Police Department to begin discussions on building stronger relationships to help enhance neighborhood safety.
The Dayton CPC has identified as its mission to:
- foster a positive atmosphere of respect and trust between citizens and police;
- resolve social conflict through improved community-police relations; and
- reduce crime and disorder through collaboration among law enforcement agencies, citizens, and community organizations.
In March 2012, members of the Dayton CPC joined members of the Dayton City Commission and officials of the U.S. Department of Justice to sign a Declaration of Intent outlining the Council’s efforts to enhance community-police relations.
