Fair and Balanced Reform
Yes on Measure B!
Measure B is simple and common sense. That's why the California Nurses Association, Veterans for Peace San Diego, and the NAACP San Diego, support it.
Measure B will replace the current broken system of reviewing police misconduct with an independent Commission, led by community members like you, with the help of independent, experienced professionals.
It's just that simple.
Join town councils, veteran's groups, proponents of justice, dozens of other local organizations, and community members by the tens of thousands in supporting Measure B.
Commission on Police Practices
San Diegans for Justice placed a measure on the November 2020 ballot to replace the current Community Review Board on Police Practices with an independent, community-led Commission on Police Practices to bring public trust to the way SDPD is held accountable.
This new Commission will:
Conduct independent investigations into complaints of police misconduct.
The new Commission will be required to use independent investigators not affiliated with SDPD. The current system is limited to only reviewing investigations conducted by the Internal Affairs Department of SDPD.
Require independent legal counsel with no conflicts.
The current system relies on the City Attorney for advice and representation, but the City Attorney also advises and represents the Mayor and SDPD.
Investigate cases like domestic violence by law enforcement.
The current system does not serve partners of police officers, who far too often fall through the cracks when they become victims of abuse.
Evaluate SDPD's compliance with Federal, State, and Local reporting laws and requirements.
The current system does not require the transparency necessary for the public to trust that SDPD complies with laws meant to protect the public from harm.
Create a fair and balanced commission.
The new Commission will have its own staff, policies and procedures to guarantee an independent, transparent, and trustworthy process for police accountability. The current system is vulnerable to political whims. Ordinary people do not feel that their voices are heard or that the current process can be trusted.
