The Community and Police Trust Initiative (CPTI) was formed by the Phoenix city manager in 2015 to review police-community relations which affect all residents. The initiative was composed of 17 community members selected by the city manager to represent the residents of Phoenix, including those from the disability, immigrant, LGBT, millennial and refugee communities.
After a nine-month process, they presented city leadership with 15 recommendations to enhance the Phoenix Police Department’s relationship with those they serve. The public is invited to learn about the recommendations and provide feedback.
Upcoming public meetings regarding the CPTI recommendations include: 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Saturday, July 9, Steele Indian School Park Memorial Hall, 300 E. Indian School Road; and 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, July 26 at the Sunnyslope Community Center, 802 E. Vogel Ave.
Representatives from the City Manager’s Office and the Phoenix Police Department will be in attendance at all events. All sessions will have translation service available and are ADA accessible. More information on these events is available at www.phoenix.gov or by calling 602-262-6937.
