Redefining Policing with Our Community: A Collaborative Report From the Testimony of Los Angeles County Residents and Stakeholders
LA County Commission on Human Relations (LACCHR) released its comprehensive report on policing and human relations entitled “Redefining Policing with Our Community”. Five years in the making this report includes 34 recommendations, including establishing an independent prosecutor for police misconduct, ending qualified immunity for police officers, shifting resources to community-based and non-police alternatives for public safety calls, and greater availability and analysis of the RIPA (Racial Incident Profiling Act) data to ensure anti-Black and all other illegal biases are identified and removed from policing policies and practices.

Actions for change: No budget increase, new use-of-force policies, changes to union contract, and more
It has been more than 10 days since protests started in Philadelphia following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis. In this time, we have seen and heard the cries of thousands of Philadelphians demanding change and proclaiming a simple but powerful truth: Black Lives Matter.
I stand with those who have taken to the streets of Philadelphia and declared that it is time to take action.
This has been a humbling experience for me and members of my administration. Many of us have realized that, as progressive and inclusive as we think we are, we still have a lot to learn. I am grateful to our colleagues, especially Black men and women, who called us out when we made mistakes, pushed us to do better, and urged us to act now.
