CONNECT POLICE WITH THE COMMUNITY

Law enforcement and those in the justice system must create connections with the community

My neighbors and I voted against defunding the police for a reason. We need more police and we also need better police. We know police-community relations suffer when officers do not know the community members they are policing. I've done work to connect law enforcement with the community since the late '90s, and I plan on using that experience and the resources available to the HCAO to double down on that mission. 

I will connect law enforcement with the community by:

  • Hiring and recruiting qualified prosecutors of color from communities affected by community and police violence

  • Holding community events with law enforcement in schools, places of worship, and local community centers

  • Using the office to spotlight good work by law enforcement and hold them accountable when appropriate
