Don't let City Council let bad LAPD officers off the hook!
Keep Police Accountable for Misconduct
The City Council is considering changes to the Board of Rights — the disciplinary board that decides how Los Angeles Police Department officers who commit serious misconduct get punished, or if they receive any punishment at all. It is the final check on LAPD officer misconduct, and the City Council should adopt changes to strengthen it to ensure bad officers are punished and removed from the streets.
ACLU SoCal, Black Lives Matter LA, and Community Coalition released a report detailing flaws in the current Board of Rights system and providing suggestions from experts and community organizations to strengthen the Board and the public's faith in the LAPD disciplinary system.
Demand that the City Council adopt the Peoples' Recommendations and reject recommendations intended to weaken LAPD discipline to ensure that even more bad officers escape punishment.
Take action now.
