Police Reform Support Network

On June 17, 2020, the Ohio Mayors Alliance announced that it was forming a Police Reform Support Network to help cities across Ohio assess, share, and support efforts to implement best practices to address racial bias and improve community-police relations. 

As a first step the Police Reform Support Network conducted a survey of our member cities to gain a better understanding of the policing strategies and tactics across the state. Based on this survey, OMA released an Internal Assessment of Police Reform Efforts and a later, the full set of findings and recommendations in a report called Restoring Public Trust: Improved Community Understanding and Enhanced Police Officer Training. See the links below for the full reports.
