On May 25, 2020, the country was shaken by the killing of George Floyd by former police officer Derek Chauvin. The blatant disregard for human life was traumatizing. There are significant observations that warrant intervention in the protocol. Officer Chauvin was supported by three fellow officers, none intervened resulting in the death of Mr. Floyd. Officers when present, are responsible for the safety and well-being of all citizens, including those in police custody.  All of the officers had the opportunity to intervene as the citizen was cuffed and, on the ground, but they did not. Trained officers are empowered to preserve life and should be encouraged to intervene without the fear of retaliation.  Prevention is possible, saving the life of a suspect in custody is the duty and responsibility of the police.

The Solution
This law will empower law enforcement professionals to intervene, without fear of retaliation or termination.

  • We must support all law enforcement professionals who stand up for the rights and the safety of the people they protect and serve.
  • We must create an environment in which police brutality is shunned and police heroism is respected.
  • We must restore and/or strengthen the relationship between police and the community’s they patrol
  • We must preserve and protect law enforcement professionals’ mental health and reduce the trauma experienced in the line of duty caused by fellow officers.
