The City of Cleveland recently drafted a new policy to end racial profiling.

The policy outlines how officers should treat the public—while remaining unbiased.

The Department of Justice ordered the city to create the plan under its consent decree.

It follows a 2014 report that found African Americans in the city feel the police department is verbally and physically aggressive towards them.

Cleveland police now want the public's help and input on the policy.

The public can share their feedback here.
