Justice reform advocates are calling for full transparency after Joanne Marian Segovia, executive director of the San Jose Police Union for nearly 20 years, was recently arrested by the U.S. Dept. of Justice for attempting to import synthetic opioids from overseas, including fentanyl.
A demand for a “thorough investigation” was made by Desiree Victor, Contra Costa County director of the Young Women’s Freedom Center.
“Segovia’s actions have caused immense harm to vulnerable communities, and she must be held accountable. This is an example of how police systems try to preserve themselves by causing community destruction and then criminalizing those communities,” said Victor.
