SB 115- Anti-police Accountability/Civilian Interactions with Police Bill

Sponsored by: Senator Randy Robertson, et al. 

Committee: Senate Committee on Public Safety; House Committee on Motor Vehicles

Summary:

  • Teach students best practices of what to do when stopped by a law enforcement officer.
  • Requires DDS and DPS to work together to design and offer the course- DPS designs, DDS offers. 
  • It should not be up to civilians to ensure they are not the subjects of police brutality. 
  • This bill fails to address the true issues within the modern day policing system. It fails to address the fact that police disproportionately kill and use force against Black people.
