Oakland’s Independent Police Commission Passes Search Protections for People on Probation or Parole

[Oakland, CA. April 12, 2019] Late last night, Oakland’s Police Commission

unanimously passed a new policy which requires that police officers have

an actual reason to search a person on probation or parole for a non-violent offence.

The commission drafted the new policy after consulting with people who had been

subjected to repeated searches, criminal justice advocates, and the

Oakland Police Department (OPD).


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.
