Community Policing Councils
Advancing Constitutional Policing
Community: a group of people with shared interests and goals. Our community’s interest is to be safe, vibrant, and thriving. Our community aspires to aid LMPD in Constitutional Policing, and to promote Community Oriented Policing.
The mission of the Community Policing Councils (CPC) is to advance constitutional policing through community oriented policing principles.
The purpose of the CPCs is to work with LMPD and develop a comprehensive Community Oriented Policing approach that collaboratively identifies and implements strategies to address crime and safety issues.
Community policing concentrates on both preventing crime and eliminating the fear it creates. Community policing enables law enforcement to better understand both the needs of the community and the factors that contribute to crime.
A well-functioning police department actively works to build trust with the residents it protects and functions as a part of the community rather than isolate from it. Community policing cultivates trust when the public views officers as engaging fairly and respecting the rule of law. It also creates officers who value civil rights, respect every member of the community equally, and see their work as an investment in the community.
CPC meetings will engage in detailed and meaningful discussions to identify concerns, problems, successes, and opportunities for Community Policing within each police division. They will craft solutions specifically aimed at the needs of each neighborhood and police division to address the community’s concerns. Those solutions will become recommendations submitted directly to LMPD Administration for consideration. All concerns addressed by the community will be made available on the OIG’s website for public viewing, as well as any recommendations submitted to LMPD Administration.
