Accountability Systems

Law enforcement officers are vested with extraordinary powers.  They impose fines and fees, legally detain people, inflict a wide array of physical harm, take people’s freedom, and kill community members.  All too often, officers face little to no accountability when they misuse their authority and engage in misconduct.  As a result, they are not meaningfully deterred from harming community members, racially biased practices persist, and communities of color continue to live in fear of police violence.  Reimagine Justice & Safety works to transform law enforcement accountability systems to offset such unchecked power and better protect Californians of color from harm.
