We believe:
  • Communities should be able to file anonymous complaints about the actions of police officers and these complaints should not have a statute of limitations on them.
  • Police union contracts create arbitrary and narrow investigatory timelines that lead to discipline being overturned or impossible to implement.
  • Less than 10% of complaints against officers are sustained — this is because of the process being cumbersome or impossible , not because officers are not engaged in misconduct.
Elected officials should:
  • Ensure that the final decision-maker about all disciplinary decisions is someone directly accountable to the public.
  • Remove any clause that prevents accountability and transparency.
  • Stop accepting any funds from police unions.
