The recent death of Douglas Kilburn and the video release of peace officer’s inappropriate use of force have once again rocked the community. These incidents are symptoms of larger systemic challenges that despite the history of Burlington policing remains unaddressed. In the absence of transparency and accountability, many have lost trust in and question the legitimacy of the BPD. The resulting lack of cooperation has made the Burlington community less safe – not more safe.

Constitutionally, our public servants have the sole, inherent and exclusive right of governing and regulating the police. Our constitution also establishes that public servants are accountable to those in whom power is inherent and from whom it is derived. Us.

Join us as we come together as a community to create a path forward that makes Burlington a safer place for everyone to live.
