Law enforcement shares with Assemblywoman Shirley Weber and the supporters of AB 931 a deep commitment to safe streets, communities where families can walk without fear in their neighborhoods, and engendering trust between law enforcement and those we are sworn to protect and serve.
Congratulations to Randy Beintema, the newly appointed PORAC Secretary! The long-serving Executive Committee Member and Director-at-Large for the San Joaquin Co DSA, graciously accepted the appointment by President Marvel to take on the duties of PORAC Secretary.
PORAC has supported policies in the past to increase transparency and enhance community trust. However, Assembly Bill 931 deceptively pretends that creating a checklist of what constitutes necessary force instead of reasonable force is something more than irresponsible legislation. The end result is that the public will be placed at greater risk.
Today, the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) endorsed Antonio Villaraigosa for Governor citing his record in dramatically reducing crime as Mayor of Los Angeles.
The Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) appreciates this opportunity to provide comments to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on questions relevant to FDA’s newly established Opioid Policy Steering Committee (OPSC) and how FDA can or should use its authorities to address this crisis.

The House Committee on Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing relating to Federal Efforts to Combat the Opioid Crisis. PORAC is pleased to share that Congresswoman Mimi Walters submitted our prepared testimony for the record and referenced PORAC in the hearing.
Yesterday, Governor Brown signed SB 620 by Senator Steven Bradford (D-Compton) and it will become law January 1, 2018. PORAC cannot understand why the Governor and democratic leaders would pass a law that allows criminals using a firearm in the commission of a crime to not be charged with the use of that firearm.
Today, across our nation, we stop to grieve the loss of 58 innocent lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. The likelihood is that the number will rise, as hundreds have been wounded, many with life-threatening injuries.
Law enforcement has been targeted for simply answering the call of duty. This is a tragic trend in the course and scope of an officer’s daily duties.
