Come express your frustration with the Police Spying Policy process at tonight's City Council Meeting
Join us at Santa Cruz City Hall at 6:30pm tonight (Tuesday) to express your concerns and outrage about the failure of the Police Spying Policy.
The "final draft" of the police spying scandal policy will go into effect on July 5th without many of the key protections demanded by activists and promised by the City Council.
In contrast to the promises of the City Council's Public Safety Committee in May 29th, including Councilmembers Rotkin, Porter, and Ryan Coonerty, the new policy will go into effect with out any public transparency, without any opportunity for public comment, and without any review or discussion by the City Council.
According to Mark Schlosberg of the ACLU, contrary to his expectations, the process of drafting the policy was not a collaborative one and involved one initial meeting and one opportunity for minor changes.
