The usual response to police brutality has been to call for civilian oversight boards. But the results, even where they're instituted, have been less than satisfactory.

Some anti-authoritarians try to organize "copwatch" networks to deter police misconduct. I don't know how effective these have been.

In general it's difficult to persuade people to be single-issue voters, especially in a sustained way. It may be more feasible to solicit funds for a single-issue PAC. People could give to this as a way of pressuring politicians to change their behavior without constraining their ability to consider other issues when deciding how to dispose of their one indivisible vote.
