FAC Opposes Legislation That Would Harm Your Right to Know 

Act now to ensure a state agency can’t shield police misconduct records

Just two years ago, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a landmark police accountability law, SB 2, that gave the state the ability to strip abusive officers of their badges. Now the Newsom administration wants to cancel the transparency part of that law, by allowing the agency tasked with this important oversight job to shield records from public view. And the administration is trying to quietly push this through the budget, avoiding the traditional policy process that gives a full airing to important law changes.

FAC stands with a broad coalition of groups opposed to this anti-transparency proposal that, if adopted, would excuse the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training from crucial public records disclosure obligations. Read our coalition opposition letter sent to lawmakers.
