§                     On October 26, 2020, City Council adopted the SAFE (Safety and Accountability for Everyone) Charlotte Plan (Plan) which includes six public safety recommendations for the city to reimagine the approach to policing and violence prevention.

§                     The Plan’s sixth recommendation calls for the city to enhance Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) recruitment efforts and develop a program to provide additional CMPD residency initiatives to officers living in priority areas.

§                     Some of the data required to carry out recruitment and residency analyses include CMPD personnel records, which may be released by City Council pursuant to North Carolina General Statute 160A-68(c2), for statistical, research, or teaching purposes when the institution certifies that no information will be released which would identify employees.

§                     CMPD and the City Manager’s Office will work with BEWorks Inc. to ensure that personnel name data remains anonymous, and the executed agreement will include a required certification similar to the attached sample certification to safeguard personnel data.
