A new California law effective from January 2024 will change police interactions with drivers and pedestrians.

Officers must now state the purpose of a stop before asking questions, aiming to reduce “pretextual stops.”

The law passed with Democratic majorities and allows officers to skip stating the purpose in imminent threat situations.

State Assembly member Chris Holden, wrote the bill to, “promote equity and accountability in communities.”

It also mandates including stop reasons in arrest reports.

The law was created to promote equity and accountability and prevent tense police-civilian interactions from escalating.
