CLEVELAND (AP) - An 11-person panel is meeting as it prepares to select a commission responsible for making recommendations on how Cleveland police officers can build better relationships with the communities they serve.

Two pastors and directors of an LGBT center and a community development group are part of the panel that Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson announced earlier this month.

The selection panel has 60 days to pick 10 members for a community policing commission. It holds a meeting Monday at 7 p.m. at the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) Community College’s Advanced Technology Training Center.

The city and U.S. Justice Department agreed in May to the terms of a consent decree that aims to make Cleveland police officers problem solvers who are free from bias in how they do their jobs.
