Police Department Update




On June 16, 2020, President Trump signed an Executive Order reforming law enforcement training, tactics, policies and reporting. Members of both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have introduced and voted on police reform measures.  Since June 15, 2020, 27 of states in the Union have introduced legislative bills on police reform, with several of those states passing and implementing those legislative efforts.  Other groups, including the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the American Civil Liberties Union have come out with best practices on law enforcement use of force, training and reporting.  This presentation will summarize the police reform efforts nationwide and compare where the PVPD currently stands in compliance with those new best practices.



There is no budget impact to receiving this presentation.
