So just a few months ago, in December, the Board of Supervisors approved the creation of a civilian oversight commission! Yay! Woo!
We’re not done yet. They set up a working group of seven men (all LASD or law affiliated) to decide the size, scope, and powers of the board. In 60 days they will report back to the Board of Supervisors and the civilian oversight commission will be formed.
WE HAVE 60 DAYS TO SHAPE THIS COMMISSION!
And one of the ways we’re going to do that is by making 1000 phone calls over the next 60 days!
CALL your working group member and and DEMAND a civilian oversight commission WITH POWER. That means:
- A 9 member board with 4 appointed from the community
- Subpoena power
- Independent legal counsel
- No law enforcement
- And that the commission guide the work of the Inspector General
Everyone should call their district rep, the Inspector General (Max Huntsman), and the LASD rep (Neal Tyler.) What LA County District do you live in? Find out here.
