UPDATE 7/25: The PAC has provided several brief documents summing up the proposed Officer Accountability and Complaint Process (as well as a condensed infographic), areas of agreement around the structures of the Civilian Board and its supporting Oversight Agency, and Reporting and Transparency guidelines.
Join us on Tuesday for a special hour-long call-in episode of Totality of Circumstances! We’ll be chatting in-studio with several members of the Police Accountability Commission (PAC), and you can add your voice to the conversation.
The group is in the last stretch of work before their final proposal for a police oversight body goes before City Council at the end of August. If the plan goes through as proposed it will create the first civilian body with the power to discipline police in the city's history, and would be unique in the nation. If the Council's recent hijinks around charter reform are any guide, we can expect the debate around the plan to be contentious at best. Check out our last show for coverage of the mostly frosty reception the PAC has received from City Council thus far.
Call in during the show at 503-231-8187.
You can also send us an email at email@example.com or use the chat feature at the bottom right of the KBOO website.
Here are some docs to check out if you’re into that sort of thing!
