If you missed the Justice System Committee’s New Police Reform Laws webinar, be sure to watch the recording: https://youtu.be/60Z7ybLlvCA.
In it, you will hear law enforcement, behavioral health specialists, and policy makers share their perspectives about new police accountability laws that went into effect in July. During the event, state legislators described the rationale and intent of the new laws, while local policy stakeholders effectively communicated their concerns. Be sure to watch until the end to hear a powerful message about why we must advocate for better policing policies, from a family member recently impacted by police violence.
We believe this conversation will inform and lead to collaboration to fine tune legislation and provide funding for local policies and behavioral health programs that will improve safety for all in our community.
