It is the intent of the People in this state that only public officers who meet and maintain prescribed standards of competence may exercise the power to make an arrest where the implementation of force must be reasonable in nature and not excessive, yet, necessarily must be deadly at times, whereas the profession of public law enforcement or occupation requires high standards of public responsibility, character, and performance of each individual engaged in the profession or occupation.
Accountability is owed to the community when death occurs as a result of the use of deadly force and for which the state must provide its own independent review and determination of the facts, however, subject further to judicial review.
The community deserves to know there is a simple complaint process available to them that is fair and impartial to report incidents exercised under the color of law of this state that involve brutality, excessive force, rudeness, inappropriate conduct, or any other complaint.
There is a great demand for police officers to be held accountable for misconduct that is unbecoming of a professional peace officer.
The People of this state deserve the best and most qualified, whose service will be at the will of the People. The use of state force is in the People's power to control and retake.
