WE NEED POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY NOW MORE THAN EVER!!
In the wake of the recent Copley vs. San Diego Press Inc. decision (which severely limits public access to the disciplinary records of police officers), the Berkeley Police Association (BPA) is hoping to exclude the public from any role in the police accountability process by pressing ahead with its lawsuit against the Police Review Commission. The BPA is seeking to shut down the open public hearing process which has made Berkeley's Police Review Commission a model for the nation.
Join us at the court house to demand police accountability and civilian review!!
A Press Conference with Copwatch, PUEBLO, BAPW and ACLUNC will follow the hearing.
