WASHINGTON, D.C. — The New York-based Police Executive Research Forum, a membership organization comprising chiefs of the nation's largest law enforcement departments, has helped lead major U.S. law enforcement reform efforts of the last 25 years, including community and problem-oriented policing. This grant supports a planning process in which PERF will serve as the lead facilitator to guide a major reorganization of the Chicago Police Department. It will work with the department to engage public, private, and community leaders in defining a new model of policing for Chicago, and to develop a comprehensive set of recommendations to guide the reorganization of the department over an 18-month period.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Police Executive Research Forum $375,000 between 2003 and 2013.
