The Commission on Racial Equity in Policing was formed to examine SLCPD’s policies, culture, and budget and any City policies that influence SLCPD’s culture or policies. The Commission is composed of individuals who represent a broad and diverse range of communities of color, expertise, and viewpoints in Salt Lake City. The Commission’s former core committee members were selected by the Mayor and City Council to lead in the structure of the Commission, invite others to participate (supported by the selected facilitator) and to create the space for productive and inclusive discourse with the broad group of Commissioners and the diversity of opinions therein.
Today, as Phase 2 goes underway, the Commission is made up of a diverse 15-member group who have strong ties to Salt Lake City and is led by a Chair and Vice Chair. The Commission has formed three subcommittees on police training, policies and practices, and school safety. These subcommittees will create recommendations, informed by community input, that will be delivered to the Mayor and City Council for further action. Mayor’s Office staff will assist this Commission in its work, coordinate with City staff on commission-requested research and information, help produce a final work product, and advise the City communications team on how to convey information in a transparent and accountable way to the public throughout the process. More information is available about the Commission by calling (801) 535-7644, or emailing REPcommission@slcgov.com
