The National Institute of Justice is the research, development and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice. On its About Page, NIJ states that “We are dedicated to improving knowledge and understanding of crime and justice issues through science. We provide objective and independent knowledge and tools to inform the decision-making of the criminal and juvenile justice communities to reduce crime and advance justice, particularly at the state and local levels.” NIJ goes on to explain that, “We accomplish our mission through the “Listen, Learn, Inform” model — we “listen” to the needs of the field; “learn” ways to meet those needs by funding research, development, and evaluation projects; and then “inform” the field of what we learned.

Learn About The Act

Many of the provisions Democrats are hailing as part of their new policing legislation were harvested from our legislative proposal formally known as The Uniform Reporting Law Enforcement Improvement Act (URLEIA). The short name assigned to URLEIA is the Equality in Policing Act. We developed URLEIA in 2015. On multiple occasions our staff, mothers of children slain by police and community advocates traveled to Congress to find a Democrat who would sponsor our sweeping legislative proposal. During the five years leading up to 2020, we could find not one Democrat who would act.

The quest to win the upcoming 2020 election, the mass protests that followed the killing of George Floyd and politically-charged calls to “defund the police” prompted Democrats to act, now.

We actively oppose the Democrat’s Justice in Policing Act 2020 as it currently exists. While the hastily constituted legislation harvests many of the unique provisions in URLEIA, it omits those URLEIA provisions that would usher in true structural change, such as:

  1. Safeguards needed to end the economic oppression of blacks via brutal policing and stem the tide of mass incarceration;
  2. Safeguards to dramatically decrease the number of unwarranted contacts with people of color; and
  3. Accountability and compliance mechanisms needed to produce deep, structural changes in policing practices.

Our nation’s long history of police brutality demands that we get it right!
