The Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee presented their report to El Segundo City Council last Tuesday (2/1), regarding their analysis of the El Segundo Police and Fire Departments. There was a slide presentation
that included some of the methodology and statistics regarding personnel, hiring policies, UoF (use of force), arrests, sensitivity training, etc.
In this message, we focus on how the DEI’s presentation to the City reported on the police department. It’s not that we aren’t concerned by the alarming lack of diversity within the fire department at large
which the Committee made clear, but we feel the El Segundo community has been more directly and negatively impacted by the police department
, so we’re advocating for improvements there more strenuously.
