The Mayor has promised to deliver legislation enacting police reform by September 5. The Mayor will break his promise to deliver legislation by September 5, instead delaying until the end of September via Ansel Herz at The Stranger.
The Community Police Commission (CPC) in August submitted its own proposed legislation (and a letter highlighting their recommendations). The question now is to what extent the Mayor’s proposal will align with the CPC’s.
This will be the first public meeting of the CPC after the Mayor delivers his proposal (assuming he meets the deadline).
The Mayor’s proposal must be approved by Federal judge James Robart before it goes to the City Council, which will have the ultimate say in the matter, probably acting in early 2017.
