In May 2021, the Future of Policing Task Force was named to review and make recommendations about law enforcement in Bloomington and Monroe County as part of the City’s commitment to the reduction of racial inequities and continuous improvement of outcomes for all residents.

Through its research, this resident-led task force aims to create an optimal vision of law enforcement including policies, practices, protocol, and procedures for Bloomington and Monroe County.

Established as part of the City’s participation in the Divided Communities Project/Bridge Initiative and its December 2019 report, the task force is part of a long-term, community-based collaborative process for addressing systemic racism and other forms of discrimination in Bloomington.
