OKC Community Policing Virtual Town Hall
Oklahoma City’s Law Enforcement Policy Task Force and Community Policing Working Group are jointly hosting a virtual town hall April 12 for public feedback on policing in our community.
Time & Location

About the event
The task force and working group are reviewing and revising the Police Department’s de-escalation policy, and developing strategies to provide credible and independent accountability back to the community.
The virtual town hall is a public opportunity to let your voice be heard about interactions with Oklahoma City police, priorities for policing in your community, ways to improve the relationship between police and the community and more.
“We need to hear directly from community about experiences with the OKC Police Department,” said Ganesha Martin with 21CP Solutions. “We can read policies and trainings, but we need to know what is really happening out in the City to understand public safety in Oklahoma City.”
Those who can’t attend the virtual meeting can submit comments about Oklahoma City police by email at email@example.com, or by text message or voicemail at (405) 467-0685.
21CP Solutions was hired by the City of OKC to provide recommendations to the Law Enforcement Task Force and Community Policing Working Group. The organization is led by former police chiefs, lawyers, social scientists, academics and community leaders who have turned around troubled police departments and renewed the community’s confidence in their agencies.
