NEW AAPA POLICY: EXCESSIVE USE OF FORCE

Posted 26 days ago by Camille Dyer

Adopted on Monday, May 24, 2021, AAPA's HOD passed an Excessive Use of Force Policy

AAPA denounces the use of excessive force by all law enforcement agencies and police officials against all people of color and members of vulnerable populations.

 

AAPA recognizes in an effort to achieve health equity, the imbalance in the use of force fueled by racial injustice and inequality must come to a halt.

 

AAPA affirms its commitment to maintaining and securing the safety and health of the public by advocating for effective community policing, robust training and education of de-escalation tactics, as well as the institution of accountability measures for all law enforcement agencies and officials.  

Thank you to our co-sponsors and our allies!
