SPVM “should make arrest reports public“

The public security commission is recommending that the SPVM make arrest reports public, one of 25 suggestions contained in a new report by the commission. It’s also recommending against racial profiling (I don’t usually go “duh” but it’s difficult to avoid thinking it sometimes), but also that officers caught doing that should be disciplined. Other suggestions include limits on how information collected by police is used, and that the public should be better informed about their rights under arrest, both of which sound like good ideas.
