SB 710

CURE THE CONFLICT

The Prosecutors Alliance is working to #CureTheConflict of interest that occurs when prosecutors accept political and financial support from law enforcement unions. Proposed legislation would require District Attorneys that accept money from law enforcement associations and police unions to recuse themselves in investigations and prosecutions of their members. Prosecutors must be independent from the police when investigating them for criminal conduct. We must protect the integrity of the prosecutorial function, the fair administration of justice, and restore public trust in law enforcement. 

SB 299

COMPENSATION FOR VICTIMS OF POLICE VIOLENCE

Unlike victims of other crime, victims of police brutality lack access to victims’ compensation funds to cover medical expenses, burial fees, therapy, and more. Proposed legislation would extend victims compensation to victims of police brutality. 

AB 1308

ARREST AND CONVICTION RECORD RELIEF

A criminal conviction, or even record of an arrest, can severely impact an indivdiduals’ future by limiting employment opportunities, housing access, or social safety net benefits. Proposed legislation would automatically clear the records of  individuals convicted of a range of crimes who do not reoffend for a defined period, as well as those whose arrest did not result in charges filed or a conviction.
