Practicas de agentes de la ley

Proteger la seguridad pública no significa sacrificar las libertades civiles

Debemos poner fin al uso de perfiles raciales y a la aplicación selectiva de la ley.

Buenas prácticas policiales, entrenamiento exhaustivo, políticas cuidadosamente elaboradas y distribución adecuada de recursos entre las agencias policiales pueden garantizar la seguridad pública y evitar abusos durante encuentros entre la policía y demás agentes del orden y el público.

Desdichadamente, en toda la nación y en los condados de San Diego e Imperial, el uso de perfiles raciales, la aplicación selectiva de la ley contra las personas de color e inquietantes políticas aplicadas al detener el tráfico y a peatones, afectan excesivamente a las comunidades de color y a las comunidades más pobres.
