The Coalition for Police Accountability and Transparency is bringing forward Police Accountability Now Policy Package for Advancing Justice. Law enforcement agencies (LEAs) should be held accountable for abusing their power in ways that disproportionately impact communities of color, including using excessive force. The death of George Floyd, and other Black people before him, demand that we reckon with and act on the moment before us. This requires a holistic transformation.
We need a significant reduction in the role, responsibilities and presence of law enforcement in the everyday lives of over-policed communities. Elected leaders must work with community members to craft and adopt solutions. The Police Accountability Now policy package offers ways to reduce the role of police in the region and invest in community led responses:
1. Pass PrOTECT, a policy that seeks to ban the use of consent searches and limit discretionary stops by police
2. Stop the enforcement of low-level offenses and invest in non-law enforcement interventions
3. Strengthen community oversight to ensure accountability
4. Adopt a robust de-escalation policy and a strong use of force policy that implements the full vision of AB 392 along with other best practices to reduce police violence.

We invite community members, groups and organizations to sign-on in support.
