THE CITY OF <br /> - CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br /> pLEASANTON <br /> July 14, 2020 <br /> City Manager <br /> TITLE: REVIEW AND CONSIDERATION OF A COUNCIL-SPONSORED ACTION <br /> PLAN TO FACILITATE: 1) COMMUNITY LISTENING SESSION(S); 2) A <br /> PROCESS FOR REVIEW OF EXISTING POLICE DEPARTMENT POLICIES <br /> AND PROCEDURES; AND 3) CONSIDERATION OF NEAR- AND LONG- <br /> TERM POLICY GOALS FOR COMMUNITY POLICING — TO BE <br /> INCORPORATED INTO THE CITY'S WORKPLAN AND BUDGET PROCESS <br /> SUMMARY <br /> The City Council requested an action plan to initiate a public discussion regarding <br /> community policing in Pleasanton in response to a national call for police reform. The <br /> City of Pleasanton and Pleasanton Police Department (PPD) are committed to <br /> transparency, listening, learning, and improving the way policing is performed in our <br /> community. While PPD has longstanding and demonstrated success of accountability to <br /> the community it serves, the City embraces this opportunity to discuss policing in <br /> Pleasanton and how it could change. <br /> This staff report outlines a process to examine ways of fostering strong, collaborative <br /> relationships between our police department and the community they serve and protect. <br /> The report outlines a three-step process to facilitate: 1) listening to our community; 2) <br /> review of existing PPD policies and procedures; and 3) consideration of near- and long- <br /> term policy goals for community policing to be incorporated into the City's workplan and <br /> budget process. <br /> RECOMMENDATION <br /> It is recommended that the City Council review and consider adoption of the Action Plan <br /> below, including the proposed timeline for completion. <br /> FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br /> Approval of this action plan does not create immediate impacts to the City's operating <br /> and capital budgets. It is possible that future City-approved policies, including expanded <br /> training and development for PPD, new community programs and initiatives, and <br /> expanded staffing resources to address mental health crisis intervention could impact <br /> the City's future operating and capital budgets. This would be addressed through <br /> subsequent actions of the City Council, including adoption of the City's workplan and <br /> future operating and capital budgets. <br />
