"Oakland could be ground zero for the future of police reform, community leaders say"

From Courthouse News Service, via NACDL's news update:

Longtime Oakland activists say the city’s police department needs a deeper effort toward reform if it is ever to exit a federal monitor and conclude a seemingly endless string of internal scandals that have seen the city push out multiple department chiefs.

That work will be lengthy, local leaders say.

“Rome wasn’t built in a day,” said Oakland’s inspector general Michelle Phillips to a panel assembled Friday night. Her office is designed to succeed the federal monitor, when the city finally transitions from a federal negotiated settlement.
