Equality Policy and Practice Review

On June 16 the Rohnert Park City Council approved a review of the City’s policies and practices to achieve greater equality. The City Council also approved a robust plan for community engagement.

The review of policies and practices will include those related to policing, as well as other City policies. The direction follows Mayor Joe Callinan’s signing of President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Pledge vowing to take the following actions:
  1. REVIEW our police use of force policies.
  2. ENGAGE our community by including a diverse range of input, experiences, and stories in our review.
  3. REPORT the findings of our review to our community and seek feedback.
  4. REFORM our community’s police use of force policies.

You're a vital part of the process. Join us for a series of community engagement sessions focused on Equality Policy and Practice Review.
