Cop Watch 101

Copwatching goals are to discourage and attempt to stop police brutality and harassment by

Educating people and communities to their rights and their responsibilities to each other.
Letting police know that their actions are being observed and recorded that they may be held accountable for their actions
Trying to get laws and regulations in place and enforced that reduce police brutality and repression.
Remember that radicals may realize that policing as a concept is one that needs to be completely rethought. But in the meantime, people have to be protected from the brutality they currently face at the hands of the police.
