COPWATCH PATROL UNIT
CPU seek to end police repression through directly monitoring police while they are engaging the public through questioning, detainment, or arrest. CPU spend their time walking the streets, observing police, witnessing and recording police interactions with citizens on camera, video-record, audio-record, and/or paper. They often concentrate in areas where known trouble making cops are assigned or areas of high police activity. CPU also advise people of their rights and listen to their stories and documents those stories.
CPU goals are to discourage and attempt to stop police brutality and harassment by;
Educating people and communities to their rights and their responsibilities to each other.
Letting police know that their actions are being observed and recorded that they may be held accountable for their actions.
Trying to get laws and regulations in place and enforced that reduce police brutality and repression.
People have to be protected from the brutality they currently face at the hands of the police. CPU has taken up that challenge. Join us in ending police brutality.
