Oakland officers violated policy in chase that resulted in injury, review finds

Oakland police officers violated policy and gave inconsistent statements to supervisors after a high-speed pursuit resulted in major injuries to a passenger in the fleeing vehicle, according to a report released Friday by an independent monitor overseeing the Oakland Police Department.

 

The alleged violations were discovered by the department’s Internal Affairs Division and presented to the Executive Force Review Board, which examines certain use-of-force incidents, in-custody deaths and vehicle pursuits that end in death or serious injury.
