Adoption of Shared Principles
On March 22, 2018, the NAACP Illinois State Conference and Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police agreed to Shared Principles designed to build trust between law enforcement and communities of color. On August 17, 2020, the City adopted these principles, which include the endorsement of community policing, development of ongoing relationships between law enforcement and communities of color to help eliminate racism, increasing diversity within police departments and use of de-escalation training for officers. A copy of the signed Shared Principles is displayed in the Police Department front lobby.
