   8. History and evolution of the Committee and the Commission by Ms. Tammy Rivera

Minutes note: Ms. Rivera walked through the PowerPoint presentation from the Community Collaborative Committee contained in file 200315 on the work and the creation of this Commission. Mr. Roman also presented the 11 findings and key committee member perspectives. The CCC's task is to take those 11 findings and make recommendations to the Fire and Police Commission. The 11 were divided into four categories, but the Committee only had time to make recommendations for 2 of the categories, so the Commission will continue that work. Ms. Rivera stressed the need that CCC members be community members and that community-based policing go across the entire police department. Deborah Blanks also provided an overview of police reform over time contained in the PowerPoint presentation. Mr. Royal pointed out that community members, elected officials and all of us need to create a community safety plan. Mr. Royal said that this Committee was born out of an ACLU lawsuit, to function as an oversight committee, based upon racially based traffic stops by the police. The goal is to change the police mindset from that of a warrior to that of a guardian, per Mr. Royal. That all members of society are treated the same way no matter their race. Ms. Rivera said the MPD training curriculum needs to be reviewed. Mr. Royal is introducing the 21st Century model of policing, created under President Obama, as a base to start with for the Commission. The mayor issued a statement that he is in support of the Commission.
