The murder of George Floyd was a harrowing violation of the sanctity of human life. It was a stark reminder of the institutional racism and discrimination in our country, and the disproportionate impact that police brutality has on communities of color. The Department of Police Accountability mourns the loss of George Floyd and stands with the community during this troubled time.
As a civilian oversight agency, we have an important role to play and we take that role seriously. It is our mission to promptly, fairly, and impartially investigate complaints against San Francisco police officers, make policy recommendations regarding police practices, and conduct periodic audits of the San Francisco Police Department. We pledge to serve the community, to continue fulfilling our mission, to hold officers to account, and to strive to modernize police practices to prevent any further members of the community from being victims of misconduct.
San Francisco has been a leader in police reform. We have already instituted the policies put forth by the #8cantwait movement - www.8cantwait.org. But, there is more work to do locally and nationally. We are leaning in to do that work and invite you to join us and share your ideas as we create change.
