Community Co-Production Policing Advisory Board

The board works with the Police Department in the implementation of a Community Co-Production Policing (CCPP) philosophy as well as assist in the implementation of recommendations stemming from the 360 assessment.

See current Board activity: www.northglenn.org/NPDlistens

  • Support City Council’s strategic focus on implementing Community Co-Production Policing (CCPP) based on the belief that the community should be integrally involved in shaping the policing strategies that affect it.
  • Help create robust opportunities to listen to the community and use community feedback to inform future decision-making
  • Advise council about community concerns as it relates to the Police Department and look for opportunities to build on the strengths of the department
  • Develop an annual board work plan focused on strengthening the partnership between the community and the Police Department
  • Advise council on other matters as it relates to aligning services and resources with community vision for public safety

About CCPP
Northglenn’s overarching CCPP goals include:
  1. Reducing fractionalism – correcting the inharmonious separation which has occurred between the community and those responsible for policing it
  2. Creating transparency – there can be no more secrecy in accountability, policymaking, or in determining strategies to address and reduce crime and disorder
  3. Balance of influence – empowering residents to get involved in shaping the vision for public safety services while also equipping those who police the community with the resources they need to effectively provide services
Northglenn’s CCPP predicted outcomes include:
  1. Increased community trust – because the community shares decisional authority in substantive policing matters, they will have shared ownership over the results
  2. Enhanced public safety – trust is the cornerstone to solving crimes, and when trust is established, people will more readily assist in public safety matters affecting them
  3. Improved racial/diversity equity – diverse partnerships lead to greater understanding, which in turn, changes perspectives, beliefs, and behaviors
