This year, Cincinnati observed the 20th anniversary of the police killing of Timothy Thomas, which eventually led to a series of reforms collectively called the Collaborative Agreement. Despite acclaim for those reforms, debate continues about elements of the Collaborative, including a police accountability board called the Citizen Complaint Authority.

It's been 18 years since Cincinnati's Collaborative Agreement was signed and two years since a refresh. With the nation's racial climate much different, new groups want a say in the way policing is done in Cincinnati, and parties to the original lawsuit say these new groups should be heard.

The Cincinnati Black United Front (CBUF) says achieving bias-free policing is only possible if the public knows the race of the people arrested. The organization wants that information entered into the public portal Cincy Insights so it can analyze it.
