“There really should be community oversight and community power to actually set policies around how we stay safe.”
-Rachel Collyer, Ohio Student Association program director
This November, Cleveland voters will have the opportunity to make their voices heard on issue 24. If passed, the issue will strengthen the Civilian Police Review Board, a mayoral-appointed board that investigates alleged misconduct by police. It will also create a Community Police Commission, which would have final city authority in deciding the discipline of police officers. In this interview I speak with Rachael Collyer, the program director of the Ohio Student Association, on what Issue 24 is and why it matters.
