The United States Department of Justice and the City of Cleveland have entered into an agreement to create widespread reforms and changes within the Cleveland Division of Police.
The changes focus on building community trust, creating a culture of community and problem-oriented policing, officer safety and training, officer accountability and technological upgrades. In addition, a Mental Health Response Advisory Committee, along with several subcommittees, were formed to foster relationships and build support between police, the community and mental health providers.
