Greenville County residents demand true citizen oversight of our law enforcement. We believe transparency and accountability are necessary to ensure the safety of our community. 

A truly effective Citizen Oversight Board will be:
- REPRESENTATIVE, board members must reflect not simply the diversity of our community, but the reality of the demographics that are most heavily policed 
- AUTHORITATIVE, the board must be involved in hiring & promotions, additionally the board must have true authority to reprimand, suspend, discipline, fire personnel, and the ability to subpoena 
- ACCESSIBLE, the board must be visible, and create an easy, safe path for community members to file complaints, raise issues, receive honest information, and collect data
- PROACTIVE, the board must be able to review and recommend changes to proposed budgets & training, always be willing to reform policing strategies according to data and best practices
- INDEPENDENT, the board must be non-partisan and must be independent from the authority of GCSO, under no condition may GCSO or County Council dismantle or disband this board

This is just one step towards a more safe and inclusive Greenville County.
