Community control of police was a key proposal of the 2020 Green Presidential campaign, and was advocated as well by many down-ballot campaigns and state and local parties as a solution to out-of-control police misconduct that has sparked massive protests in recent years. This amendment would make community control of police official Green Party policy.


Amend Chapter II. Social Justice, Section H Criminal Justice, Subsection 5 Police Accountability, to add the following language as item f:

"Establish community control of police through elected local police oversight boards with subpoena power to investigate complaints about police behavior and hold offending officers accountable. These boards will be empowered to hire and fire police officers and chiefs."


Approval of this proposal will amend the 2020 GPUS Platform.
