The City of Providence has committed to the Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative’s pledge to review our police use of force policies (see here for more information). As part of this process, we are seeking community feedback on the Providence Police Department’s current use of force policy, last updated in February 2020 (Policy: Use of Force (English)) ( Policy: Use of Force (Spanish)). Please use the form below to submit anonymous feedback. Comments will be collected from August 17 through September 4, 2020.
This feedback will be used to provide productive updates to the existing policy where necessary and will be included as part of a public report out as committed to in the Obama Foundation’s pledge. No identifying information will be used in the report. Please note that incomplete forms or forms with suggestions unrelated to Providence Police use of force policies will not be considered.
Thank you for your commitment to helping our City advance racial justice.
