Yesterday, at the Tampa Citizens Review Board monthly meeting, the Policing Project released its report summarizing the results of the community survey on the practices and performance of the Tampa Police Department. The survey is part of an ongoing effort to improve understanding of the community’s priorities and concerns around policing.
Today the Los Angeles Police Commission approved a new policy requiring the LAPD to release video footage of officer-involved shootings and other critical incidents within 45 days, unless there are extenuating circumstances that require delaying release. The change in policy comes in response to a report released by the Policing Project in September of last year, which showed broad public support for making video public in the interest of transparency and community trust.
This Friday, March 16th, the online survey conducted by the Tampa Citizens Review Board with the assistance of the Policing Project will come to a close. The Tampa CRB’s survey invited members of the Tampa Bay community to give feedback on the practices and performance of the Tampa Police Department. The survey is designed as an essential first step for the Tampa CRB to begin taking a proactive role in evaluating issues of importance to the Tampa Bay Community. We thank all those involved for helping spread the word.
