On April 12, 2021 after the original Police Reform Working Groups had completed their recommendations, the Dayton City Commission announced the members of the Police Reform Implementation Committee, which will monitor the implementation of working group recommendations over a six-month period, to conclude in late fall of 2021.

The Implementation Committee will have two roles:

  1. Receive updates on implementation of working group recommendations from City staff and ensure they are being implemented in alignment with the working group’s intentions; and
  2. Give feedback on a process for setting up a long-term accountability structure, including recruitment of long-term participants.

The Police Reform Working Groups made recommendations to create a new long-term accountability structure to strengthen and expand community engagement and oversight of policing issues. Recommendations that are not fully implemented by the end of the six-month implementation period will be monitored by the appropriate long-term committee in this new structure. The finalized long-term committee, its members and their duties will be developed over the six-month implementation period in consultation with the Implementation Committee and other community partners.

As the recommendation phase of the police reform process came to an end, volunteers from each working group were solicited to sit on the Implementation Committee.
