SAN FRANCISCO (CA) — Today District Attorney candidate Suzy Loftus issued a call to action and affirmed her support for AB392: The California Act to Save Lives, from State Assemblymember Shirley Weber. Read the complete call to action here.
“If we want people to trust those in power, we need to be clear through our actions that those who hold the public trust will be held to, and trained to, a higher standard. They will be held accountable for any misuse or abuse of their authority,” said Suzy.
“AB392 is a vital revision of legal standards for acceptable uses of force by police officers that will have an immediate positive impact on all communities throughout California.”
As Police Commissioner President, Suzy previously led community efforts in 2016 to revise the Use of Force Policy so that deadly force is mandated as a last resort and to prioritize the safeguarding of dignity, rights, and lives in police training.
Suzy urges you to support AB392 by taking a moment today to contact legislative members and advocate for the approval of AB392.
