FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - May 22, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

Santiago Vazquez, combat veteran and retired sergeant of the Broward Sheriff's Office, is proposing a comprehensive plan to end police abuse in Broward County. The plan promises to usher in a new way to protect and serve minority communities. 

Vazquez’s plan is designed to lead the way in a policing revolution that places minority communities on equal footing as stakeholders in society. The plan’s key component consists of establishing a third-party observation committee made up of civilians from organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The purpose of the third-party committee is to hold law enforcement to the highest standards of fairness, accountability and transparency.

According to Vazquez, the civilian oversight committee will ensure that BSO:

recruits proportionally from the communities it serves and protects  ends racial profiling  ends the incarceration of undocumented people who have not committed a crime is fair, accountable and transparent in the way it polices, trains and disciplines

“It's time for us to overcome these long-standing challenges to mission accomplishment by bringing in third-party observers to ensure we do the right thing,” says Vazquez.
