Described as one of the most powerful policing accountability tools by DOJ experts, EIIPs have been part of the law enforcement landscape for over forty years. With an overarching philosophy that’s squarely situated within multiple pillars of the Final Report of The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, EIIPs are intended to help identify problematic behaviors with law enforcement personnel for the purposes of intervening proactively instead of reactively.
