The release of this Report is only one step in the ongoing process of reforming the policing practices in our cities. The Conference will remain engaged to support our members and give them the resources they need to implement our recommendations. As part of that commitment, the Conference will:
Establish and maintain a database of sample policies and best practices that align with the recommendations in this Report.
Provide advice and counsel on how to implement these recommendations, including through workshops and panels.
Revisit our recommendations to ensure we keep pace with continued developments in policing and public safety.
The mayors and cities represented by the Conference are varied but united. We face, on a daily basis, the issues born of the challenge of reforming our policing practices. We are committed to bringing about real, lasting change. The recommendations in this Report will serve as a guide as we do so.
