Community Meeting on Police Oversight Efforts

The City of Davis is conducting a public forum on Thursday, December 7, 2017 to talk about community perceptions on policing and engage in a discussion on police oversight models and principles.  The meeting will take place at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A Street, at 6:30 p.m.

It is anticipated that the meetings will start with a short presentation and then move into a series of questions to elicit input from attendees. Anyone interested in police oversight issues is encouraged to attend.

At the November 7, 2017 City Council meeting, with a focus on renewing police oversight efforts, the City Council approved the hiring of consultants Barbara Attard and Kathryn Olson. The consultants will guide a community involved process to help Davis evaluate the current Independent Police Auditor Oversight program and to ultimately recommend a number of potential models that fit Davis, given its size, history of policing and community needs.

This meeting will be the first of two community meetings and will be in addition to smaller forums that will be held over the next two months. The smaller forums are geared to engage disproportionately impacted community groups. The overarching objective of the consultants is to understand the needs and concerns from the widest sample of perspectives possible.
