Position Paper - Police Reform

Due to this this incident, I believe I should announce my position on police reform.

I believe police must be held to the highest of standards due to the power and authority given to them with their position and their AZPOST certification.

I support the following:

A: Laws requiring bodycams to be on all officers with no ability for them to be turned off.
B: Updating AZPOST requirements to include de-escalation and human psychology training.
C: Qualified immunity must be abolished. Those who abuse their position as an officer must be held liable, as do those officers that give cover to those that abuse their position.
D: Treating AZPOST certification the same as teacher certification, where it can be suspended or revoked due to misconduct, where revocation is a lifetime revocation.
E: Updating hiring requirements, and making psychological assessments required for renewal of AZPOST certification.
F: Ending internal affairs and making all investigation of police misconduct run by a community police oversight committee when needed. No other job in the country investigates itself.
G: Turning all police resumes, records, and bodycam footage into public records, similar to teacher resumes in Arizona schools.

No more CYA of police agencies hiding their dirty laundry. Joel John believes, in his voting records, that police must be automatically respected. I believe that respect must be earned and trust my be re-established.
