The conversation we want to have isn’t about getting rid of police. What this organization wants to talk about is getting rid of the barriers to upholding decisions made by the Chief of Police about the running of his department. The barriers that shield problematic police officers, placing them above the law and creating inequality of justice. That barrier is the contract with the police union and Chapters 143 & 174 which hinder police accountability. Our goal is to repeal these laws and bring accountability to the San Antonio Police Department.
these laws give OVER 70% of fired SAPD officers
their jobs back
you can change that
As the country cries out for police reform, San Antonio has an opportunity to shape the conversation with respect to police union contracts and how they enable inappropriate behavior. Just as we were a model for building the disproportionate power of police unions in the United States, we can be the model for police accountability. Clearing a path for reform is as simple as opting out of these laws.
