Shining Light on the Militarization
of Police Departments

The Task Force on Police Reform, a collaboration between Ashby Village Elder Action and Berkeley Friends/Racial Justice Action Team, presents this panel discussion on new California law AB 481 that makes the militarization of local police forces transparent to the community.

Barbara Atwell from Berkeley Friends will moderate this discussion where the four panelists will explore ...

  • what kind of equipment East Bay police departments have,

  • what safeguards protect the public’s welfare, safety, civil rights, and civil liberties, and

  • how the purchase of military equipment and associated training has, as some say, changed the interactions of police with the citizens.
