21st Century Policing Solutions Preliminary Report Now Available


TACOMA, Wash. -- 21st Century Policing Solutions has provided the City of Tacoma with 64 preliminary high level recommendations based on their work to date. These preliminary recommendations provide insight into the direction that 21st Century Policing Solutions is taking in its analysis, including what they will be delving into with greater detail in their final report.  Their final report is projected to be completed by March 15, 2021. In the meantime, the City will begin prioritization and development of a work plan. 

In June 2020, the Tacoma City Council passed Resolution 40622. This resolution formally acknowledges that the City of Tacoma’s existing systems have not adequately served the needs of everyone in our community and, in particular, have not adequately served the needs of Black community members and other community members of color. It affirms the City of Tacoma’s commitment to improving existing systems for all community members, with the first stated priority being local policing.
