SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The three-pronged ``Racial Justice and Law Enforcement Realignment Policy Package'' was approved by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday after considerable public input and discussion.
The three policies involve strengthening the Citizens' Law Enforcement Review Board's authority and independence, opening an Office of Equity and Racial Justice for San Diego County and having Mobile Crisis Response Teams that use clinicians instead of law enforcement for mental health and homeless services. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher unveiled the proposals on Friday.
