Next Steps

New policies on bias-free policing, stops and detentions and use of force were approved by the Federal Court and SPD has put them into practice. Many of the CPC's policy recommendations were incorporated into the final policies. SPD's training policies and curricula will be updated in waves during 2014; the impact of the CPC recommendations concerning these will be known later this year.


The CPC adopted and submitted its accountability recommendations on April 30, 2014. The Commission's final assessment of SPD's community outreach activities is due July 31, 2014.

The CPC will continue to seek community input in 2014 and 2015 on these and other areas of its work.
