Hammond Police and Citizens Advisory Committee
The Hammond Branch NAACP is one of the co-founders of the Hammond Police and Citizens Advisory Committee. After an incident involving a Hammond’s white police officer being accused of using excessive force against an African American, the Hammond Police Department and a diverse group of concerned residents representing neighborhoods and communities of Hammond, IN in Community Policing Districts 1-5, created an entity known as the Hammond Police and Citizens Advisory Commission (HPCAC) whose mission is to improve the relationship between the police department and the community. It is also intended to develop frank and open communication with residents and police on matters concerning but not limited to public safety, procedural justice, use of force, and biased policing.
