Add comment on:BART Police Oversight Vs. Every Cop Union in the State; Police Chief Gee Out; and a Rumor
Just three days after the proposal was forwarded from the subcommittee on police oversight, the BART Board of Directors voted unanimously on Thursday, August 13th, in favor of submitting the new police oversight plan to the California legislature for approval. As legislators debate the plan's merits, or lack thereof, it is certain to be vehemently resisted by every police union in the state, as the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) has already threatened. The BART Board is currently lobbying legislators to pass the proposal, and undoubtedly statewide police representatives are lobbying for rejection of the plan. BART is hoping that the Board's unanimous support for the proposal will be enough to serve the police unions a rare defeat in the state legislature.
