32-23: Advisory Commission on Policing (formerly the Policing Advisory Commission) link

As introduced, this bill would have severely weakened community oversight of the police. During the legislative process, it was amended to incorporate many elements that the JUFJ Campaign Fund and our partners advocated for. In the final version, this bill slightly strengthened police accountability and clarified roles among various oversight bodies.

  • Amendments supported by JUFJCF
  • When Bill 32-23 was heard in the Public Safety Committee, a package of strengthening amendments were passed that transformed the bill's impact by rolling back a series of provisions that would have reduced participation by members of overpoliced communities and replaced them with people who already have the most power, including the police and business members.
