Police Oversight Task Force
On Oct. 29, 2019, City Council gave unanimous final approval to recommendations from the Police Oversight Task Force to install an auditor-monitor to investigate complaints against officers, along with a new panel of community members to evaluate the auditor-monitor. There is more to do before the fresh model comes to life. A majority of the task force plans to continue meeting to nail down how a selection committee for the new public panel will be put together, how the new panel should report back to city officials, term lengths for panel members, how members could be removed and what the qualifications of the police auditor-monitor should be.
