CCCS Data Informs Law Enforcement Conversations
Members of the NFO/RWC CCCS subcommittee on law enforcement and community relations presented at the December 16th meeting of the Redwood City Police Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC was formed earlier this year through a City Council resolution “to support partnership and transparency between the community and the Police Department”. Rafael Avendano, Executive Director of Redwood City Together, shared some of the data from NFO/RWC CCCS, including that 39% of youth felt discriminated against by local law enforcement in the past year. He encouraged the PAC to consider CCCS strategies as they develop their work plan and offered the CCCS workgroup as a resource and information partner moving forward.
