Liability Reserve Fund Budget Rider

Post by Lauren Hartnett » Wed Aug 12, 2020 9:06 pm

On Behalf of CM Harper-Madison:

Colleagues,

I think the proposed liability reserve fund cap is a great step towards fiscal responsibility and accountability. But I appreciate that some of my colleagues have concerns about the details. So, I'd like to propose an alternative approach. I think we can address those concerns and still shore up responsibility and accountability for spending related to police misconduct. We can do that by requiring APD to publicly provide details about how they plan to reduce liability risk, while we also explore other options for paying these legal bills.
