This is a follow-up to ACLU’s meeting with the community in August. Please RSVP here if you would like to attend.
From Marshal Arnwine Jr. Advocate, Criminal Justice Program, ACLU NorCal:
- The fact that police not only do not promote public safety in Vallejo, leaving people to fend for themselves, but the police actively terrorize people and make the community far less safe;
- The need to hold individual officers accountable for misconduct and find ways to work around the limits on the statutory decertification process; and,
- The indifference and lack of meaningful action taken by city leadership with regard to Vallejo’s policing problem.
- The possibility of seeking decertification for some of Vallejo’s most notorious and problematic officers;
- How we might influence the State Department of Justice regarding a possible consent decree that would provide court oversight of the Vallejo Police Department; specifically, we will be working on proposed policy revisions and other reforms that we could urge the Department of Justice to implement;
- Whether the Vallejo City Charter needs to be amended or revised to allow for more transparency and oversight of the VPD, or whether we can achieve more under the existing charter; and,
- What the implications are for the current emergency declaration for VPD hiring and oversight.
