The state of affairs

Following the numbers

1,000 officers lost their badges due to sexual misconduct

Who are we protecting?

  • An online or anonymous reporting and special officers trained in dealing with sexual assault victims
  • GPS Tracking of officers
  • Rules forbidding departments from hiring previously fired officers
  • Mandates about body and dash cams

Moving beyond babysitting

  • Illinois passed a law in 2018 number 559
  • Maryland passed a Bill 1292
  • New York passed S7708
