The Community Police Commission (CPC) seeks consultants, through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process, to conduct community outreach between October 1, 2013 and November 1, 2013. Consultants will plan and conduct outreach to targeted groups, inform these groups of the police reform process and the CPC’s role in that process, solicit from them general feedback on police-community relations and specific feedback that will inform four specific policy areas that the CPC will make recommendations on, and report the results of their outreach activities. The outreach is intended for communities most directly affected by excessive use of force and biased policing (communities of color; immigrant and refugee communities; lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender communities; youth; those who are low-income and/or homeless; and those with chemical dependencies or mental illness). The CPC provides community members with a means to comment on proposed changes in police policies and practices, and a voice and stake in Seattle’s police reform process. The selection of Consultants is subject to applicable laws and ordinances regarding equal employment opportunity. RFP submissions are due on Sept. 18, 2013.
