A national conversation is taking place on the role of policing in American communities. Protests have surged across the country in the past few years, starting with Michael Brown’s death at the hands of police in 2014 in Ferguson, MO and now following the recent murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN.

As part of the Mayor’s UniteMalden2020 initiative, Mayor Christenson signed the Obama Foundation’s “Reimagining Policing Pledge” and committed to the following actions:

  1. REVIEW your police use of force policies.
  2. ENGAGE your communities by including a diverse range of input, experiences, and stories in your review.
  3. REPORT the findings of your review to your community and seek feedback.
  4. REFORM your community’s police use of force policies.

An advisory group was formed to review the Malden Police Department’s use of force policy by navigating these 4 steps and making recommendations. A critical stage of the process is to gather feedback from the community and include their input on the recommendations. 

Members of the community are urged to learn more about the use of force of policy and the recommendations and to fill out a survey which is found at: The information is translated in different languages.

The community is also invited to attend an informational public meeting on June 10th at 6:30PM, on Zoom (Webinar ID: 974 0704 6842 and Passcode: 455489). For more information call 781-397-7000, Ext 2005.
