PPD RESPONSE TO CNA AFTER-ACTION REPORT RECOMMENDATIONS
Wednesday, January 13th, 2021
PHILADELPHIA- On Wednesday, December 23, 2020 the City of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Police Department received the results of an independent review of the City’s and Police Department’s response to demonstrations and civil unrest from May 30th – June 15th of 2020. The review, which was requested by Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, was conducted jointly by attorney A. Nicole Phillips, a partner of the Philadelphia-based law firm Montgomery McCracken Walker and Rhodes, LLP, and CNA, a nonprofit consulting firm. Their mandate was to review the City’s preparation and response to the protests, demonstrations, police use of force, and other activities in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, and to form conclusions and recommendations for systemic improvements. Commissioning both firms allowed the report to be informed and guided by the subject matter expertise and data analysis approach of CNA with the investigatory and legal expertise of Phillips and her firm.
The final report identifies a total of 77 issues with the PPD’s response to city-wide unrest during this time period, and also includes recommendations for improvement in each area. As a separate attachment, this release includes the PPD’s response to each of the 77 issues identified.
