We are working with legislators to ensure that the Governor’s $100 million investment in policing includes funding for training in crisis management, implicit bias, and improve use of force protocols, in addition to increasing training requirements.

We will also be pushing for as much funding as possible to be diverted from traditional policing to alternative public safety investments and recruitment of behavioral health workers, social workers, and other professionals that can respond to issues like substance abuse, mental health, and homelessness appropriately. 

We will be pushing for the establishment of a statewide decertification registry to keep officers who engage in misconduct from moving from agency to agency.
