    In the wake of the death of George Floyd San Francisco Supervisor Shamann Walton & District Attorney Chesa Boudin have introduced a resolution that would prevent law enforcement from hiring officers with a history of serious misconduct. 

    San Francisco law enforcement would be prohibited from hiring officers who are guilty of the following:

    • Discrimination based on race, national origin, gender or sexual orientation
    • Excessive force
    • Racial bias
    • Dishonesty related to the reporting, investigation or prosecution of a crime or misconduct of another officer

    The Civil Service Commission would be in charge of making sure SFPD & the sheriff's department don't make any such hires.

    The goal is to especially protect people of color from police misconduct.
