Supervisor Fletcher Responds to Sheriff Gore Ending Use of Carotid Neck Restraint
I commend Sheriff Bill Gore for agreeing to eliminate the carotid neck restraint and empowering deputies to use less harmful de-escalation tactics. Our voices have been heard, this is one actionable step toward healing the broken relationship between law enforcement and the Black community. Thank you to the nearly 2,000 residents who signed our petition. Our work is not done, I commit to continue to address the systemic oppression and racism that disproportionately impacts our communities of color.
