We’re Investigating Police Misconduct. Do You Have an Incident to Report?
Records of police misconduct and use of deadly force have for the most part been kept secret in California for decades. But that changed with a new state law that took effect on Jan. 1, 2019.
The new law allows public access to records of sexual assault by on-duty peace officers, of lying by officers on police reports or testimony, of police shootings and any officer use of any officer use of force resulting in serious injury or death.
