Action 1
Action 1

Mandate Training in De-escalation, Avoidance of Implicit Bias and Crisis Intervention. Police officers will have on-going training in de-escalation, crisis intervention and avoidance of implicit bias to reduce the use of force, and to avoid unequal treatment of individuals based on implicit bias. Training is not sufficient in itself; skills in de-escalation and implicit bias must be demonstrated in the field by police officers.

Action 2

Maintain Full Transparency and Accountability. Transparency and accountability are the foundations of a democracy. In January 2020, SB 1421 and in 2018, SB 978 became the law in California, providing for public access to law enforcement records. This ensures that law enforcement agencies are transparent and accountable leading to greater understanding and better relations between law enforcement and the community.
