Issues 10 was created after the murder of Jayland Walker in Akron, Ohio. He’s unfortunate death has open the eyes to the community. It made people realize police are not doing your job properly. They’re shooting before trying to de-escalate the situation and moving off emotions instead of logic.
Many officers that police our community do not live in our community yet they constantly are being sent to our neighborhoods. Issue 10 board members will be people from our neighborhoods helping improve the relationship between police and the community. The goal is to teach police how to handle a situation without deadly force. Vote yes on issue 10
