County racial equity group meeting tonight

CountySeal

Today, Thursday, April 7 at 5:30-7:30 p.m. the Ventura County Public Safety Racial Equity Advisory Group will be meeting via Zoom. 

This advisory group was formed in 2020 by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors when they declared racism a public health crisis and pledged to promote equity, inclusion, and diversity in housing, employment, economic development, health care, and public safety in the County of Ventura.

The BOS directed the CEO to establish an advisory group to help foster meaningful discussions and identify concerns related to policing policies and procedures regarding hiring, training, and misconduct. The BOS envisioned an independent advisory group consisting of both public safety and community leaders, all of whom would collaborate to create greater understanding and identify strategies and proposals to improve institutional law enforcement practices. You can review the BOS resolution here.
