In July, Raheem – the independent service for reporting police – announced a three-month study the organization is conducting to move residents to the center of policymaking and inform a new police use-of-force policy in Oakland. The study will end on September 30, 2020, and was authorized by Oakland’s Police Commission, the group of residents appointed by the mayor and city council to oversee the Oakland Police Department. Raheem will use the results of the study to put forward policy recommendations to the Commission so that it can rewrite the official policy governing the use of force by the Oakland Police Department. Have your say Tuesday at 5.
