Community Coalition Calls for Independent SDPD Review Board
WHAT: Present Proposal to Strengthen the San Diego Citizens Review Board on Police Practices to the City Council Charter Review Committee, Item 4
WHEN: THURSDAY, 6pm
WHERE: City Hall, 202 “C” Street, 12th Floor Council Chambers
Over 25 years ago, City voters passed two ballot measures to establish a Citizens Review Board on Police Practices in the City Charter, with the measure lacking independent investigators and subpoena power receiving 800 more votes and therefore implemented. More than 25 years later, shootings (police perpetrated murders), assaults and misconduct by SDPD officers are media fare and taxpayers have paid over $7 million in claims.
