Call to Action for Delaware Campaign for Fair Policing

Here is a real opportunity to change our policing systems! A series of stakeholder meetings are being held about Senate Bill 149 which was introduced last year to increase transparency and accountability in Delaware policing.

● The first stakeholder meeting will take place Friday, September 24 at 3:00 p.m. During this session, you’ll be able to watch representatives from various state agencies and organizations discuss the provisions of SB 149.
Sign-up for Stakeholder Session #1 here.

● The second session will take place on Wednesday, September 29 at 6:00 p.m. This follow-up session will be dedicated to community testimony, so the various state agencies and organizations can hear directly from the community about the best ways to strengthen police accountability and transparency.
Sign up for Stakeholder Session #2 here.

We would like to create a groundswell of energy about this bill as it may be difficult to get it passed! The bill will remove barriers to public access of misconduct records and allow local governments to establish civilian oversight.
