The ordinance seeks to:
* Limit police officers role in intelligence collection programs
that compromise civil liberties
* Puts limits on racial and religious profiling by making officers fill out a form describing all encounters as a way to foster accountability
*Stops police from engaging in undercover infiltration of peace and/or political groups that engage in 1st amendment activities
*Limits collaboration with federal officials, especially when concerned with immigration enforcement
