League calls for City of Sacramento action on "use of force" policies
The League of Women Voters of Sacramento calls for Sacramento City Council action on legislative requirements. LWVSC evaluated the Sacramento Police Department’s recently revised use-of-force policies with respect to alignment with California’s Act to Save Lives (AB 392), a state law that took effect on January 1 of this year. LWVSC’s report found that SPD’s revised use-of-force policies have not complied with the law even after receiving criticism and recommendations from the California Department of Justice and the city’s own Sacramento Community Police Review Commission.

The Sacramento League calls on the County Board of Supervisors to keep campaign expenditures under control so candidates have similar opportunities to inform voters. Evidence shows that tighter contribution limits are associated with more candidates and increased competitiveness in elections.
