Oakland Officials Wrestle for Control Over New Police Commission Staff Positions

The city council rejected legislation that would have given the city administrator control over the commission's inspector general.

At stake, say activists with the Coalition for Police Accountability, is whether the police commission will truly be independent, or whether two city officials — the city attorney and city administrator — will be able to influence its work.


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.
