IPCE to Support Community Task Force on Policing in the City of Elgin
IPCE will partner with Kearns & West, a facilitation and strategic communications firm, to create, manage and facilitate a Community Task Force on Policing in the City of Elgin.
The city council approved the creation of a community task force on policing last year. With the assistance of facilitators, the Community Task Force on Policing will review the policies, procedures and practices the Elgin Police Department (EPD) employs to determine how EPD can most effectively and equitably deliver law enforcement services to all members of the community this summer. The City of Elgin intends to undertake a process that openly and objectively examines the means and methods the EPD employs to support and sustain a safe and inclusive community and explores how those means and methods are perceived by the community.
The Task Force’s ultimate objective is to make recommendations for viable solutions to enhance the EPD’s service to and relationship with Elgin’s residents, visitors, businesses, and institutions.
