Governor Newsom’s Policing Advisors Announce Recommendations to Improve Police Response to Protests and Demonstrations

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom released recommendations from his policing advisors for improving police response to protests and demonstrations and a series of actions in response. The release of the report follows the Governor’s signing of a package of legislation last month to reform policing practices and tackle discrimination in the criminal and juvenile justice systems.





In response to the more than three-dozen recommendations, the Governor has directed the statewide Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) to modernize training and guidance for law enforcement to ensure that it prioritizes the protection of First Amendment rights and to develop best practices for law enforcement to identify, monitor and strategically detain individuals suspected of inciting violence and destruction during protests and demonstrations.

Additionally, the recommendations encourage local law enforcement agencies to require all officers in direct contact with demonstrators to wear and activate body cameras; ensure the protection of journalists and legal observers; and identify and address the role of hate groups in disrupting protests and instigating violence. Finally, the recommendations propose restrictions on the types of weapons and tactics that should be used during protests and demonstrations.

“The role of police officers in protests and demonstrations is to keep the peace, and facilitate the ability of protesters to demonstrate peacefully without infringing on their First Amendment rights,” said Governor Newsom. “Implementation of these recommendations will help ensure our law enforcement agencies are better equipped to respond safely to protests and demonstrations and reinforce the values of community partnership, de-escalation, and restraint.”

The policing advisors are Ron Davis, a former East Palo Alto police chief who also served as the head of the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services during the Obama Administration, and Lateefah Simon, a current director and president of BART and president of the Akonadi Foundation.

Chief Davis and Ms. Simon worked with Professor Jack Glaser of the Goldman School of Public Policy and Administration staff on the recommendations following a series of convenings across the state with numerous stakeholders, including law enforcement, local government, legislative leaders, youth, civil rights advocates, community-based organizations, mental health experts and journalists. The Governor asked the advisors to provide recommendations for improving law enforcement response to protests and demonstrations and for ensuring that California’s new use of force laws are well implemented. The recommendations released today focus on protests and demonstrations. Recommendations related to the new use of force laws will be released in the coming weeks.

“It has been a true honor to work with Lateefah Simon and the outstanding team at the Governor’s Office. The recommendations we are providing to the Governor reflect the best practices from the field to ensure law enforcement effectively and safely facilitate First Amendment protected demonstrations and protests in a manner consistent with both the Constitution and the high standards and values of California. I applaud Governor Newsom for his leadership and continual commitment to ensuring all Californians are treated equal under the law,” said Chief Davis.

“Dissent and protests are as American as apple pie. The right to peacefully assemble is a fundamental one that we hold dear. This moment of national reckoning on racial justice will be defined by the impassioned voices for reform and leaders who respond courageously. I applaud Governor Newsom for working to protect our First Amendment rights and his commitment to moving California forward,” said Ms. Simon.

These recommendations follow the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, and that of other unarmed Black people at the hands of police, and the global protests and demonstrations that ensued. Governor Newsom held meetings across the state with faith and community leaders, elected officials and small business owners, all to discuss racism, systemic injustice and how we move forward as a state. The Governor also directed the POST Commission to stop training police officers on the carotid hold.

Governor Newsom last month signed a series of bills into law initiating critical criminal justice, juvenile justice and policing reforms in California, including banning the carotid restraint, requiring the Attorney General to conduct investigations into officer-involved shootings of unarmed individuals that result in death and legislation that reforms the juvenile justice system to put more emphasis on rehabilitation and education.

Just put these idiots in stockades at town squares so the public can see who they are, admonishing them with a stone or two as in the past.

    It's just the perfect solution.
    In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, police in Chinu, Colombia, placed residents who broke quarantine in stocks.

    Like the guys who took over the Maluer wildlife refuge Oregon, or the armed guys that stopped all traffic on Interstate 1-5 in Nevada, like the guys with ARs who stppped people on public roads in Oregon, or the guys who had an armed standoff with cops near the Bundy grazing permit ,

      Newsom only cares about catering to the losers. I have total respect for the police and am tired of them getting blamed for everything.

    Very good call Mr. Newsom. “If” Biden wins, we can implement all his ideas here in Arnold and Murphys. If you people don’t wake up it’s on its way to our area! The writing is on the wall. Vote Trump

      Officer's are already trained, just let them do their jobs to protect life and property. Yes, I say property too, these damn losers just want to destroy property at tremendous expense to our taxpayers as well as our business owners.

        I believe in a good choke hold. Guaranteed, when you put a choke hold on someone they will stop what they are doing.

          Good choke hold, cut of the carotid artery the your held for murder. Better know what your doing. Very dangerous not to say you can break a neck! Be careful on that one.

            Why does law enforcement even have to contact these people, because the good citizens want them to. But if you act in a very negative way when a officer contacts you you may be treated in a very negative way. A officer does not want to shoot you or put a knee to your neck or place you in a choke hold, just fricking play it cool and don't bring on more than you can handle you idiots!

              At 71 years old I have never had a police officer contact me in a negative way, I don't do things that attract them to me. I don't act like an ass verbally or physically hence they leave me alone. If they did do something to me that I thought was out of line I would just remain calm, comply and then later lay a beef on them if appropriate. Idiots, don't mouth off, fight, run or anything else stupid. Better idea, don't break the law. Police don't really profile, the idiots usually profile themselves drawing law enforcement's attention.

                That was a wasted read, as usual! Do the right thing, no police contact!
