Last week the Riverside Coalition for Police Accountability hosted a community forum “Lessons From Ferguson” and discussed the findings of the Department of Justice’s report on Ferguson, MO and the lessons learned from the 2001 State Attorney General’s findings in Riverside, CA after the Tyisha Miller shooting. The event featured a panel discussion with law enforcement and community leaders including Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, and community leaders Julio Marroquin, Jennifer Vaughn-Blakely, and Woodie Rucker-Hughes. The Coalition focuses on key areas for continued improvement: training in racial profiling and practice, race and traffic stop/citation data, police department workforce diversity, and cultural competency and community relations.
