LOPD Updates City Council on CCOP Progress

On November 1, 2022, Chief Burke and Captain Simon updated the City Council on our progress toward the recommendations from the Community Conversation On Policing (CCOP). For the presentation to have context, it is important to understand what led up to this point. We engaged in a community dialog that sought to identify opportunities to strengthen how our police department collaborates with all persons in our community to provide public safety. Utilizing a team of outside facilitators our department, City, and community sought to review our public safety systems, structures, policies, and practices in order to increase transparency, build public trust and strengthen and build relationships, especially with those who have historically been marginalized.
