SA Stands has surveyed every candidate running for the 2021 Municipal Election on whether they would introduce and pass a cite-and-release ordinance. A cite-and-release policy requires law enforcement officers to issue a citation instead of arresting an individual for low-level offenses, such as marijuana possession, minor theft, and driving with an invalid license.
