Mr. Mayor: The new Police Commissioner and the Police Contract must promote transparency and accountability to the public.
To accomplish this we need:
- Adequate funding for an independent, civilian-run policy oversight agency.
- Reforms to the broken grievance arbitration system that reinstates policy who violate the PPD Disciplinary Code.
- An end to the policy of “stop and frisk” for both pedestrian and vehicle stops that discriminates against people of color.
POWER’s “Love Free” team is collecting 10,000 signatures for the Mayor for this accountability initiative.
Barbara G. has the letter and information. She will be collecting signatures in church on Sunday, December 29 and January 5. You can also sign the petition online here.
