Here are the government agencies and officials who can take action, right now, to end police violence by taking democratic control over the Wethersfield Police Department.
Ending police violence requires all Connecticut residents to demand better from our governments locally, statewide, and federally. And it requires all of our government actors, from mayors and town councilmembers to state legislators and members of Congress, to take action now.
Every arm of the government has a role to play in ending police violence. Until our state and local governments stop abdicating their responsibilities and start ensuring democratic control over police, we will see police violence in Connecticut again.
