Joint Community Police Partnership

The Brooklyn Center Police Department continues to be part of the Joint Community Police Partnership (JCPP), an award-winning, collaborative effort in the west metro to enhance communication and understanding between law enforcement and multicultural residents.

  • With Brooklyn Centers' diverse community, this program is an essential part of the police department's delivery of service to our residents.
  • Training for community members about police procedures and laws in order to improve community members' knowledge and understanding about what is expected of them.
  • Training for police officers, including the provision of information about cultural groups residing in their cities.
  • Hiring personnel sensitive to the needs of our diverse community, such as community liaisons who work at the police departments, multicultural cadets and/or multicultural community service officers.
  • The creation of a Multicultural Advisory Committee to serve as a communication bridge between the police department and diverse community residents.

The JCPP is a collaborative effort of the cities of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Richfield, St. Louis Park, Bloomington, Hopkins, Hennepin County, and the Northwest Hennepin Human Services Council. Funding for this program is provided by Hennepin County. Partner cities provide in-kind support including, but not limited to providing office space and equipment, supplies, and supervisory staff.

The mission is to enhance communication and understanding between law enforcement officers and multicultural residents of these cities. By building trust and communication between the police and community members, we will ultimately improve the safety and livability of our communities.
