SITUATION: The Coalition to End Biased Stops has been working for over 2 years to eliminate racially biased police stops in SF. The Police Commission did finally vote unanimously in favor of Department General Order 9.07, a comprehensive policy to prohibit racially-biased traffic stops in San Francisco. HOWEVER – since then, this policy has been stuck in the “meet and confer process” with the Police Officer’s Association (POA).
It has taken nearly an entire year, but the policy is finally coming back to the Police Commission for its second and final vote TOMORROW, February 21st.
- Please take 20 seconds to send an email to the commission urging them to finally implement DGO 9.07 by using this easy email tool.

- Meet us at Police Commission tomorrow at 6:30pm at City Hall, Room 400! We want to show force, and while the meeting starts at 5:30pm, this item is 8th on the agenda.
To learn more about DGO 9.07, why it’s so important for our clients, and why it has been held up so long, please read this letter drafted by the coalition.
And please share this message with colleagues, friends and family in San Francisco.
