As part of the national Live Free campaign, FITV is advancing efforts to promote alternatives to incarceration and to end racial profiling and the criminalization of black and brown young people. Leaders in several of our counties have built support for the implementation of 21st Century Policing and are currently organizing for independent review and investigation of deadly force and other mechanisms to improve transparency and accountability among law enforcement.
Public data shows that LAPD stops and arrests are racially and economically biased, costly for communities, and an inefficient means of advancing traffic safety.
