California must establish a process to remove abusive police from the streets to protect those who are targeted by police violence: Black people, indigenous people, people of color and those with disabilities.
SB 731, the Kenneth Ross Jr. Police Decertification Act (Bradford) will keep communities safe and keep officers who commit misconduct off the streets. This bill is named in honor of Kenneth Ross Jr., a young man who was killed by a Gardena PD officer who has killed several people in Senator Bradford’s district and remains on the force today. Without a process to decertify police officers who are abusive, police who have repeatedly murdered and abused Californians will continue to threaten our safety.
