Fair Police Union Contracts
  • Fair Police Union Contracts-Police union contracts and statewide police bill of rights laws make it harder to investigate and hold officers accountable for misconduct. Cities with police union contracts have higher rates of police misconduct complaints and more killings of unarmed people.

Many of the rights given to the Police department unions are covered by State laws making this something that we cannot unilaterally change.  New state legislation is needed to give the City and the Police Department more rights when it is necessary to remove a bad officer from the force. This does not mean it is impossible to remove officers that violate rules, commit criminal acts, or display racial bias. The MHPD practices a zero tolerance management style taking aggressive steps to protect the integrity of our department and the officers who proudly serve our community.
