Assemblymember Jim Cooper Stands Up For Law Enforcement

California Assemblymember Jim Cooper is standing up for law enforcement statewide.  Cooper, a retired Sacramento Sheriff's Department Captain, has taken the lead educating his colleagues in the Legislature about officer-involved shootings, how law enforcement departments respond to and investigate critical incidents, limits of body cameras, how much training is already required of law enforcement, and the role of socio-economic issues law enforcement did not create and cannot solve alone.  Cooper's stand comes as another assemblymember has introduced a bill requiring the Department of Justice to review every officer-involved shooting in California.
