New Bill Requires California Police To Earn Degree To Serve And Be Armed

Cal­i­for­nia wants to crack down on cops and dis­arm them. If they can’t defund the police, they’ll make it hard­er to become an officer.

Police offi­cer can­di­dates would have to get a bachelor’s degree or turn 25 before being allowed to car­ry a gun and wear a badge under a bill pro­posed by a Cal­i­for­nia lawmaker.

Assem­bly­man Reg­gie Jones-Sawyer, D‑Los Ange­les, intro­duced AB89 on Monday.

Under cur­rent state law, most peace offi­cers have to be 18 years old and must have a high school diplo­ma or the equivalent.

Jones-Sawyer is hop­ing the bill will reduce the num­ber of times police offi­cers shoot or harm peo­ple by adding edu­ca­tion­al and matu­ri­ty com­po­nents to a police offi­cer’s basic job requirements.

Cal­i­for­nia law enforce­ment agen­cies seri­ous­ly hurt or killed civil­ians 703 times in 2019, accord­ing to Depart­ment of Jus­tice data.
