High-profile incidents of police violence on the national stage and here in Washington have amplified calls for transforming police culture and increasing accountability. Washington state legislators are considering several ideas like requiring de-escalation, prohibiting certain deadly tactics, establishing independent investigations of deadly force incidents, strengthening decertification procedures, and removing police accountability from collective bargaining. This conversation explores how these various proposals are intended to change police departments and repair broken trust between community and their elected representatives.
