Dear Raleigh City Council,

The time for police accountability is now. In the aftermath of Akiel Denkins’ fatal shooting by a Raleigh police officer, we urge you to hold public hearings on ways the Raleigh Police Department can be more transparent, combat biased policing, and hold officers accountable when they violate their pledge to protect and serve. These hearings should explore:

  • Adopting police body cameras and accompanying policies to prevent abuse
  • Requiring written consent forms before subjecting people to searches and pat downs
  • Strengthening anti-bias police training and techniques
  • Creating a Community Oversight Board to promote transparency and civilian oversight
  • Other ideas for making Raleigh a safer city for all.

Please fill out all of the fields below:
