21st Century Policing Compliance
The 2015 President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing raised a number of concerns and recommendations regarding the performance of policing in the United States.
The 21st Century Policing Compliance report provides an analysis of what the Bartlett, Illinois Police Department has done and is doing as it pertains to this report and its primary recommendations for police agencies.
The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police (ILACP) and the Illinois NAACP State Conference announced an affirmation of 10 Shared Principles that are designed to bridge the gap of mistrust between police and communities of color. The first of its kind in our nation’s history, the March 22, 2018, agreement between an NAACP state conference and a statewide law enforcement agency identifies the common ground between local law enforcement and communities of color in their commitment to safe communities. The ILACP encouraged all police departments to adopt these principles as their own by signing the affirmation of shared principles. Bartlett Police Department adopted these principles on July 23, 2018.
