THE DAILY CALIFORNIAN: District 15 candidates discuss police and housing at North Oakland forum

Apr 9, 2018 | In the News

“On the topic of police accountability, candidates were asked if they would support the newly proposed AB 931, which, according to the forum host, would authorize ‘deadly force only when it is necessary to prevent imminent death or serious bodily injury’ and encourage ‘officers to defuse confrontations or use less deadly weapons.’ The candidates unanimously supported the bill, resulting in fervent applause.

‘In addition, I support Nancy Skinner’s bill, which would create accountability by requiring the disclosure of police shooting investigations,’ Wicks said during the forum. ‘We also need implicit bias training for our police officers in order to rebuild trust.”
