Mayor’s Office Provides Implementation Update on Use of Force Advisory Council Recommendations

December 2020

On December 10, Mayor’s Office staff presented to City Council during a Public Safety Committee Work Session to provide a status update on the implementation of the Mayor’s Use of Force Advisory Council recommendations. The presentation provided an overview of the Advisory Council and their recommendations, the Administrative Orders Mayor Bottoms issued in response, and actions taken to date in the areas of:

  • Reform
  • Transparency
  • Partnerships
  • Accountability
  • Community Engagement

Mayor’s Office staff also used this opportunity to introduce the police reform and community engagement consultants to Councilmembers, including Chuck Wexler, Executive Director of the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF)and Jesse Wiles, Principal of Urban Planning and Management.

The December Work Session was the second one that Mayor’s Office staff participated in to provide an update on the Use of Force Advisory Council’s recommendations. The first Public Safety Work Session on this topic was held on August 27, 2020 and a copy of that presentation can be found here.
