Add comment on:BART Anxious to Wrap Up Police Oversight Plan at Final Subcommittee Meeting, 8/10/09: audio & PDFs
The BART police oversight subcommittee held what was likely its last meeting on August 10th to consider the feedback it heard at the July 30th public forum and the comments it gathered via traditional and electronic mail through August 7th. It was obvious that it's members were anxious to close the door on the process and move a draft to the full BART Board for a vote. Despite repeated public feedback against allowing BART police to appoint a member to the so-called civilian review board and against restricting the review board (and BART's own Board) by requiring 2/3 supermajorities to overrule the police chief and the general manager on issues of police discipline, those problematic parts of the plan will remain.
