Citizen’s Review Board
I believe that the city should establish a citizen’s review board that would be tasked with investigating allegations of improper conduct by Fort Worth Police. It would also be tasked with investigating complaints by officers who do not believe they have been treated properly by superiors.
Transparency is important if we want to build strong police-community relations. It is reasonable to have citizen oversight of those responsible for fairly and justly enforcing the law. All of those who work on behalf of the citizens of Fort Worth should be held accountable for their actions.
While our great police officers do a tremendous job keeping us safe, that does not mean there is no room for improvement, especially in regards to their relationship with the community. I look forward to working alongside community leaders and law enforcement to properly address this issue.
