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.
The JCPP is a collaborative effort of the cities of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Richfield, 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.
