Welcome to the Police Community Engagement and Outreach Task Force Website
The city formed this task force after a March 2010 incident involving a Phoenix Police officer and Councilman Michael Johnson brought to the surface feelings and perspectives about the Phoenix Police Department and its interactions with the community.
The task force met from from April to November 2010 to develop a plan to implement short-term, intermediate, and long-term strategies and programs to address officer training, communication, community policing and public outreach.
