Oakland considers policing model involving civilians responding to specific 911 calls

OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – In nationwide unrest over the death of George Floyd, there are growing calls to defund police departments across the country. 

Some protesters seek to disband police departments altogether. 

A different model of policing that involves civilians responding to specific 911 calls is currently under consideration in the city of Oakland.


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.
