MCCA Report on the 2020 Protest and Civil Unrest
Through the work of the MCCA Intelligence Commanders Group (ICG), an after-action review on this summer’s protests and civil unrest was approved for public release. From May 25th to July 31st, 8,700 total protest events occurred in 68 major cities and counties. This level of activity was unprecedented and while the majority of protests were lawful and peaceful, 79 percent of reporting agencies experienced at least one protest that involved some level of violence and in cities where violence did occur, assaults on officers, looting and arson were the most common criminal activities.
