Oakland voters overwhelmingly back police oversight measure

For the second time in four years, a supermajority of Oaklanders voted to give a civilian police commission vast authority.
Four years ago, Oakland voters approved the creation of a civilian police commission with the power to fire the police chief, make and review a range of police policies, and discipline officers for serious misconduct, including the use of deadly force, lying, and sexual assault. 
Now, a new measure that will strengthen that commission is winning by a large margin. 
According to the latest vote count, Measure S1 is passing with 81% of the vote.


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.
