Councilwoman Stark’s Statement on the Department of Justice Announcement Council District 38/5/2021 8:30:00 PM Stark’s Statement on the Department of Justice Announcement<div class="ExternalClass8B66A819050F43E2879E1931F5B5F7E3"><html> <p>​“The women and men of the Phoenix Police Department have a difficult job where they must make split-second decisions to protect others while putting their lives on the line every day. For police officers, trust is a vital component to building relationships with the community members who police officers swear to serve and protect. My hope is the outcome of the investigation will help restore trust and increase accountability and transparency.<br><br>Our officers are often called to respond to situations that are better handled by experts trained in behavioral and mental health crisis. I am proud that my City Council colleagues and I approved funding in the budget to expand the Community Assistance Program to have civilian mental health experts respond to crisis calls, rather than police. This approach is long overdue and will help strengthen health outcomes and avoid negative interactions.<br><br>During this time of review, I hope our officers know that scrutiny does not diminish the good work they do every day. I welcome any necessary improvements to restore the relationship between our Police Department and Phoenicians."<br></p> </html></div>
