Sign the Petition to Put a Community Oversight Board in Nashville on the November Ballot

Home/Take Action/Sign the Petition to Put a Community Oversight Board in Nashville on the November Ballot

For decades, ACLU-TN has been part of the chorus of voices calling for Nashville to establish an independent community oversight board with robust power to investigate and hold law enforcement accountable.

The tragic death of Daniel Hambrick, who was shot and killed by a Metro Nashville police officer last week, only reinforces the need for such a substantial and common sense reform. A community oversight board is critical to stem the erosion of community-police relations and promote basic police accountability and transparency.

Community Oversight Now is collecting hard copies of signatures for a petition to put an amendment establishing a community oversight board in Nashville on the November ballot. This amendment calls for a board with “independent authority to investigate allegations of misconduct by The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD), offer and implement remedies to police accountability, and issue advisory and resolution reports to institutions involved in public safety and the administration of justice.”

Sign the petition to put a community oversight board on the ballot by Tuesday, July 31.*

The deadline to collect all petitions is 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 31. You can drop off your printed and signed petition by 6 p.m. tomorrow at the following locations:
