Work done by the Coalition for Police Reform (CPR) has led to a Police Accountability Board recommendation. Reviews of the proposal report for a Police Accountability Board are being presented to various groups throughout the City. Authors of the report are seeking the support of neighborhood groups through a letter of endorsement to encourage the City Council to establish the Police Accountability Board.
I had a chance to take in a presentation by one of the authors, Barbara Lacker-Ware, at last week's Delegates Council meeting of the 19WCA. This Thursday, April 20, 2017, Barbara will be presenting the information to the SouthWest Common Council at 6:00pm at the Phillis Wheatley Library. All are welcome to attend or to contact Barbara Lacker-Ware at firstname.lastname@example.org , 585-354-9504, to schedule a presentation.
A 6 page summary of the report can be found at: The Case for an Independent Police Accountability System 2.1.17 .
The full 111 page report can be found at: The Case for an Independent Police Accountability System.
Barbara Lacker-Ware and Ted Forsyth are to be commended for this comprehensive and well-researched proposal. Peter and I strongly support it and hope the 19WCA will send a letter of endorsement to City Council.
