Community Oversight Policy Advisory Reports

Metro Nashville Community Oversight has two research analysts that conduct policy research and analysis. Policy advisory reports may review and investigate any aspect of the Davidson County Criminal Justice system. Reports consider insights from the fields of criminology, criminal justice, law enforcement theory, civil rights, and racial justice.

Community input is essential for our policy research to reflect the experiences of Nashville’s diverse residents. We welcome ideas for policy research from members of the public. Email your research ideas to
