Oakland City Council Voices Strong Support for Immediate Implementation of MACRO
by Coalition for Police Accountability
The Tuesday, March 16th Oakland City Council began with overwhelming support during public comment for Mobile Assistance Community Responders of Oakland (MACRO), the alternative emergency response model that was developed to respond to a broad range of non-violent emergency calls without police. The votes to create a division within the fire department to house MACRO and to direct the city administrator to expeditiously implement the pilot was unanimous, as all city council members joined the resolution as co-sponsors.
