The Task Force led by Project Coordinator Dr. Robert L. Davis, consisted of over 50 community organizations, and countless individual citizens in cooperation with Denver City Government. The collaborative group met consistently for over two years researching, analyzing data, deconstructing and reconstructing policing models and hearing the impacted community voices while reaching out to various partners across the country who also were endeavoring to do this important work.
Out of all of this painstaking work, the “Denver 112” was created. The Denver 112 references the historic112 Denver community led collaborative recommendations that were submitted to Denver’s Mayor and City Council to not only Reimagining Policing in Denver but actually manifesting change through these 112 thoroughly vetted recommendations. It is our belief that these 112 recommendations can transform our archaic policing models of today to a Community Led Policing Model that will ensure equity and safety for all Denver citizens. The Task Force believes strongly that these 112 transformative recommendations can be the guidelines for other City Jurisdictions across the country who also are bold enough to dare to “reimagine policing and public safety” in their municipal areas.
