City Inside/Out: I-940 Police Accountability
9/28/201829:20

POLL: Should it be easier to prosecute police who use deadly force?

When law enforcement officers are involved in fatal shootings, should it be easier to prosecute them? Supporters of Initiative 940 say more police accountability is needed, as well as de-escalation and mental health training. The law enforcement community has united in opposition to the ballot measure, arguing it will endanger officers and civilians. If this seems like déjà vu, a compromise deal brokered by the state Legislature this past spring was thrown out by the state Supreme Court, which ruled that I-940 must go before voters on the November ballot.
