SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California has joined the vast majority of states in setting up a way to strip the badges of police officers who act criminally or with bias, a change that was among several criminal justice reforms signed into law Thursday by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The law allowing the decertification of poor officers comes 18 years after lawmakers stripped away that power from a state police standards commission.
