Welcome to Next Steps Washington!
Next Steps is a broad-based community group dedicated to following up on the implementation of Washington State Initiative 940: the Law Enforcement Training and Community Safety Act (LETCSA). I-940 was passed by the voters of Washington State in November 2018.

LETCSA established new requirements for:
- Training in de-escalation, mental health crisis management, and trauma first aid; and
- Independent Investigation of all fatal shootings by law enforcement officers in Washington State.
