External Assessment of Police Policies and Practices Now Available
Published on January 13, 2022
In the summer of 2020, the County Board asked the County Manager to lead a review of police policies and practices following national events involving policing and racial justice. The County Manager appointed a 15-member Police Practices Group (PPG) to review four key areas: Community Oversight Board, traffic enforcement, mental health services and alternative dispute resolution. PPG provided their initial recommendations for the County Manager in Feb. 2021.
The County Manager also called for an external assessment of ACPD administrative policies and practices to ensure they align with current best practices. The report is now available online, along with a transmittal letter by the County Manager and summary of steps ACPD has taken in response to the findings.
