We can all agree that police officers who commit serious misconduct should
be taken off our streets so they can't continue to harm our communities. *But
California is one of only five states that has no way to remove the badge
of an officer who commits serious offenses like unjustified shootings,
sexual harassment, and lying under oath.* We can change this by passing SB
731: the Kenneth Ross Jr. Police Decertification Act of 2020.
We know that police departments often let abusive officers get off without
serious consequences. And even when officers are disciplined or even fired,
too often they just move to another police department, leaving our
communities at risk. Time and time again, we have seen that the police
cannot police themselves.
Senate Bill 731 would allow the state to remove the badge of abusive
officers, make sure they don't escape accountability by moving to another
community, and allow them to be held liable for their abuse in court.
California can revoke licenses for serious misconduct for more than 200
other professions like doctors, lawyers, contractors, and barbers.

These officers do not belong in our communities. California needs to take
Your state assembly member needs to hear from you! *Call to urge them to
vote YES on SB 731: 833-946-2258. Your call will keep our communities safe
from abusive cops. *
Thanks for all you do,
