There are also steps that you can take as a citizen to help change the infrastructure that allows for police misconduct in the first place. The organization called Human Rights Watch has the following suggestions:
Write to your state legislators and governor urging them to create a special prosecutor’s office to handle the investigation and prosecution of police officers accused of brutality or corruption.
Write to your city government and urge that full funding be provided for citizen review of police officers accused of human rights violations. If your city, county, or town does not have citizen review of your police, call for the creation of an effective civilian review unit.
Write to your U.S. Representative or Senator, urging them to base federal grant money awarded to police departments on the departments’ creation of effective accountability systems.
Write to your city government and urge it to require your police department to create and use “early warning” or “at-risk” systems to identify officers who are the subjects of repeated complaints or civil lawsuits alleging misconduct.
