• Description

Evaluation of the Law Enforcement Leadership for Equity (LELE) initiative between the Center forChildren's Law and Policy (CCLP) and four law enforcement departments revealed that law enforcementagencies can achieve policy change goals within one year, confirming that CCLP's process and focus onagency leadership can successfully support reforms in that relatively short time. However, gaps betweenpolicy changes and targeted measurable outcomes evidenced that more work remains for lawenforcement agencies and youth justice professionals working toward racial equity.
