The Santa Cruz City Council has been asked by staff to approve policy changes related to "racial equity and social justice" instituted by the Santa Cruz Police Department in the wake of the national movement for police reform following the killing of George Floyd.
City Manager Martin Bernal and Chief of Police Andy Mills are also introducing a new ordinance for council approval, titled the Discriminatory Reports to Law Enforcement Ordinance. The ordinance is modeled after the "CAREN Act" (Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies), which was passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently to discourage racially motivated reports to law enforcement.
Both agenda items will be heard by the city council on Tuesday, November 24 at 7:30 PM.
