Last summer people took to the streets, not just in Los Angeles, but around the world to protest for racial justice and civil rights. To truly make our communities safe, we need to address the root causes of crime and poverty, and implement reform that addresses systemic inequalities and alternative policing strategies that involve the community.
On June 16, I’m convening a joint meeting of the Public Safety Committee and the Board of Police Commissioners to discuss public safety reform in cities and police departments across the country. This historic meeting will be an opportunity to learn more about the successful models of community based policing safety initiatives being implemented in other cities.
