What is Measure B?
Measure B is a charter amendment that establishes an independent community-led commission on police practices. If 51% of San Diegans vote to pass the measure this November, it would change the City Charter so that the current Community Review Board on Police Practices would dissolve and be replaced with a Commission on Police Practices. The independent commission would have members appointed by the City Council. The new commission will have its own staff, subpoena power, independent legal counsel, and the authority to investigate police officer misconduct, review complaints against officers, and make recommendations on police officer discipline, police policies, and Police Department legal compliance.
In order to restore trust between police and communities, Mid-City CAN's Youth Council advocates for the creation of an independent community-led commission on police practices. Mid-City CAN believes that an independent commission reflective of our diverse communities, with youth representation, is vital to establishing trust between law enforcement, and the communities they are assigned to protect.
