Council Extends Police Officers’ Contract Early-Avoiding Scrutiny by Commission or Community

On the very same day that a federal judge reinstated three of the tasks that the Oakland Police Department was supposed to have completed as part of the Negotiated Settlement Agreement [NSA] now in its 15th year, the outgoing city council including two lame duck members (the third Desley Brooks was absent) performed a sleight-of-hand vote to re-up the existing city contract [MOU] with the police officers’ union.


The mission of the Coalition for Police Accountability (“the Coalition” or CPA) is to advocate for accountability of the Oakland Police Department to the community so that the Oakland Police Department operates with equitable, just, constitutional, transparent policies and practices that reflect the values and engender the trust of the community.
