It is well documented that police often harass and violate the rights of our community members. As a way to combat (stand up to) abusive policing practices, the community can take up its own practices to hold law enforcement accountable for their actions. One of these practices is “Cop Watching.”
Cop Watch is a completely legal practice of documenting police activity.
At this training, we will learn how to effectively Cop Watch and safely navigate through tense situations like an encounter with police while assisting your community in the process.
In addition to Cop Watch, this training will feature the nuts and bolts of conducting Migra/ICE Watch -- which is a form of Cop Watching that can be used when community members are targeted by immigration law enforcement.
Learn more about what you can do to defend yourself and fellow community members from police harassment, unlawful arrests, deportation, and other forms of state violence!
