People Over Policing

When it comes to the policies in law enforcement, we need to make sure we’re putting the lives of People over the act of Policing at ALL times.

Why Now?

It’s been more than a year since the Prop B election, and while we have made strides toward stronger discipline, we are still missing key pieces to better civilian oversight and accountability and there are a number of areas of concern.

Due to the overwhelming need for police accountability, ACT 4 SA is dubbing April 2022 –
