Comprehensive Community-Police
Relationship Act (CCPRA)

Traffic Stop Statistics

The Comprehensive Police-Community Relationship Act of 2015 (CCPRA) is the product of more than a decade of extensive collaboration between community and law enforcement. Over the course of many meetings, community and law enforcement worked through differences and built trust, ultimately crafting legislation that was introduced in both the House and the Senate. The House Bill, 2015-H 5819 Sub A, was sponsored by Representatives Almeida, Abney, Diaz, Maldonado, and Williams. The Senate Bill, 2015-S 669 As Amended, was introduced by Senators Metts, Pichardo, Goodwin, Jabour, and Miller. Both bills were signed into law by Governor Raimondo on July 10, 2015.

By working together, law enforcement and the community gained a greater understanding of each other's concerns. In an environment of respect and partnership, community and law enforcement ultimately agreed on language that honors the community's desire for just stop and search procedures, while permitting law enforcement to maintain public safety and implement best practices.

What we are doing

Numerous organizations and individuals worked on and supported the legislation, including: the R.I. State Police; R.I. for Community & Justice; the Commissioner of Public Safety of the City of Providence; the R.I. Civil Rights Roundtable; the R.I. Police Chiefs Association; the R.I. Commission for Human Rights; the NAACP Providence Branch; the R.I. State Council of Churches; the Board of Rabbis of Greater Rhode Island; the R.I. Council for Muslim Advancement; and many others.
