CPRB Letter to the City and County in the wake of the George Floyd killing

April 30th, 2021

“During this difficult time in the community/police relationship, our common goal must be threat and risk-reduction through de-escalation tactics and as appropriate, minimized enforcement contact between police and civilians. All interactions should begin with a basic respect for human life and proceed with the dignity deserved by all individuals, each as a worthy human being.”

B-PEP Letter to the City and County in the wake of the George Floyd killing

April 21st, 2021

“What B-PEP calls upon our area police departments to do is to help level the playing field. We are unfortunately at a time in this nation’s history when basically no Black or brown man can feel at all comfortable or safe when stopped by the police. That reality is wrong and must come to an end. We ask for the partnership or both our area political leadership and the leadership of all area police departments in making the slogan “Protect and Serve” a living reality for all the citizens of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.”
