Detroit Residents Advancing Civilian Oversight (D.R.A.C.O) is dedicated to educating Detroiters on the roll of the Detroit Board of Police Commissioners so they may exploit this resource to protect the liberties and safety of themselves and their neighbors.
We support oversight of the Detroit Police Department by a civilian Board of Police Commissioners.
We affirm that the majority of that Board be elected.
We support the election of some of the commissioners from compact districts.
We support a requirement of residency in the region the commissioner represents as a qualification for holding that office.
We affirm that the civilian oversight body have the power to set policy and impose disciplinary action for DPD officers who abuse their authority to the detriment of those they are pledged to serve and protect.
