Police Brutality and Misconduct
A police or sheriff department is required to protect and serve its citizens, not put them in danger, injure them or engage in offensive behavior. In order to protect innocent and vulnerable citizens, police or sheriff departments must have rules, policies and systems in place that ensure that its employees have the proper training and tools at their disposal to make encounters with citizens as safe as possible for themselves, the citizens they encounter and innocent bystanders.
When police officers and police departments hurt or kill the very people they are sworn to serve and protect, we will demand accountability and change.
