Police officers should avoid using deadly force whenever possible. But, right now, officers can legally use deadly force and kill someone even when they have other alternatives.
That’s why we’re supporting The California Act to Save Lives, a bill introduced this year by Assemblymember Shirley Weber (D-San Diego).
AB 392 will save lives and make clear that police officers should use deadly force only when there aren’t alternatives. It is a common-sense bill modeled after best practices already in place in some departments – and that we know work to reduce police killings.
Your state legislator needs to hear from you. Ask them to support AB 392 today.
