Information regarding the DOJ Probe of the Phoenix PD

The Cactus Park Community Alliance encourages you to comment to the US DOJ on any experiences you may have had with the Phoenix Police Department.  The DOJ is looking for all responses, not just negative.  Much of this was driven by a small vocal group of dissenters.  Please take a few moments to tell DOJ about your positive encounters with Phoenix PD.  Thank You

If you want additional information about the DOJ investigation, please go to the DOJ website at www.justice.gov

U.S. Department of Justice

Official website of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). DOJ’s mission is to enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.

www.justice.gov

Additionally, any individuals with relevant information about the Phoenix PD should contact the DOJ via email at Phoenix.Community@usdoj.gov or they may call toll free to 866-432-0335.  The information one choses to relay to the DOJ can be both positive as well as negative towards the Phoenix PD.

I know during the first meeting held virtually at the beginning of last week, most of the folks were more negative towards the police but that does not mean that folks with positive stories should not have their voices heard!!! Experiences both positive and negative are each individual’s experiences and need to be heard to get the full story and not just a one-sided conversation!

Thank you, The CPCA Community

FYI – On September 8 there was an article about the cleanup of homeless encampments.  Read it HERE.

Found this on Facebook and have innocently answered these seemingly innocuous questions.  Not saying we should cease being sociable.  It is just something to think about.

The Cactus Wren Block Watch (CWBW) has partnered with our precinct to help our CAO’s obtain things the city is not able to provide for them.  One of the items is a 10 foot tall inflatable officer, a pop-up to provide shade and other items used in community-relations.  The CWBW is proud to be able to help out wherever they are able.  Here are a couple of pictures from the delivery to the precinct on March 3, 2021.
