"Today, we are called as leaders to step forward and create racial equity and break down systems of oppression. This cannot be accomplished by repeating what solutions have been used in the past or the quick fix of defunding the police in communities. If we want true change and collaboration, it starts with empowering residents to get involved in shaping the vision for public safety services while also equipping those who police the community with the resources they need to effectively provide services.

In partnership with BerryDunn, we are advancing their recommendation to implement CCPP to help us take our community-oriented policing philosophy to the next level. We expect this process to provide sustained opportunities for members of the community to truly collaborate and positively influence the future of policing in Northglenn.”
