7:30 am

7:31 am
there. i don't know whether or not the district attorney has a representative no does not - so anyway another two weeks we'll have another meeting and it is at the 6 page proposed general order we made it threw page one lots discussion and it went well-staffed by the police department commander mosser and deputy chief ali and then finally another outreach activity chief suhr didn't mention that that had to do with a webinar it chief suhr and attorney sandra participated
7:32 am
in morning hosted by itself urban institute and it about children of incarcerated parents from arrest through pursue adjudication and an all-day webinar that started at 9:30 pacific and went to 3:30 reasonable person so but the chief suhr and sandra are a open the first of four panels and there's their panel, of course, was on parental arrests that was excellent i listened to that part of the webinar and it provide resources to organizations that want to move
7:33 am
forward so that concludes my report. >> can i gusts an idea of organizations that participated in the webinar just to get you wasn't listening to that one. >> the organizations in terms of the. >> the webinar presented to chauffeuring chief suhr. >> there were 3 hundred agencies on the webinar when i stepped out i don't know if more joined in but law enforcement across the country and anyone that was clafbd on invited a subsequent webinar they expect several hundred if not a thousand agencies across the country and world i believe june 16th to participate. >> any other questions for the
7:34 am
director of occ i see commissioner hwang. >> i'm wondering in the occ has a planning process around the body cameras i've looked at jurisdictions that adopted do body cameras to see how it impacts what i've seen there is reports that this be could anticipating to be a drop in the number of complaints but maybe the occ will have to restructure and think about better review technology and doing enhancements i don't know if if there are things you have to do definitely in anticipation of the body cameras. >> the occ through joyce hicks has done research on body cameras and there are a lot of materials out there and the police department has done a great job of providing materials to the members of the
7:35 am
task force i've reviewed some of the materials in advance there's a department of justice tool kit and certainly the preliminary information that i've received is is complaints have dropped as a result of body mounted cameras and my feel about all of that that will give the investigators more time to focus on their exist caseloads in terms of the technology you know we'll see it t is another piece of evidence and we will see in terms of the length of time it takes to conduct an investigation what that impact might be it can only be positive
7:36 am
in terms of the having yet another tool it is not the final tool it is another amount of evidence i'm hopeful the occ will be able to make more deforgiven finding we don't have the evidence to make a- we don't have a preponderance of the evidence to determine whether or not the officer conduct was proper or improper so this leads both the officers and the complainant unhappy there was not a dive active finding, of course, when a one-on-one and the only witnesses are interested witnesses witnessed officers or someone who has a
7:37 am
relationship with the complainant it is difficult to determine i see that as a positive and not as an impediment if we need more technology this will be an ask at occ. >> any other questions for director hicks. >> inspections. >> commission reports discussion commission president's report and commissioners report. >> the commission president is absent this week as the vice president i have no specific issues to report on other commissioners do you have any issues you'd like to report on. >> commissioner melara. >> yes. a couple of items. >> there are a couple of items
7:38 am
i represent the commission on the letting committee one issue with the app you know that is being investigated to be used by the officers for translations i sent the information to the chiefs office i know there was a request around the budget and how much it will cost i suggested that it is looked into it seems like an affordable option to when an officer is not present and that app also includes sign last thing u language f it can be used that will be conceive helpful the second one has to do
7:39 am
with certifying officers when they speak a second language we have someone from human resources and from the city's human resources department and personnel from the police department try to explain to this person why it was so important to do a good certification as well as recertification over a period of time and somehow they couldn't understand is it there was a pulse time why to recertify people who were certified and there was one of our officers specifically said i was certified 20 years ago when my spanish was investigated and over time haven't used the language why shouldn't i be recertified or examined why i'm doing a good job the department put out a case the city not just
7:40 am
the police department but the city as a whole needs to take a look at certification and the fact they're paying people to speak a language but they don't certificate them as you mention the city examples that was used on a yearly basis asks every person to take the sexual harassment training but when it minds to language we don't ask to be recertified those are the two things the third things i attended the family violence council meeting we there was a presentation of the courtyard children of incarcerated and everyone loved it one of the
7:41 am
things we need to edit the video there is someone in the void that shouldn't be in video. >> that has happened there's a lot of the original video went out at&t's as dvds but that's happened. >> and the other thing i have forwarded through inspector monroe the report 2014 report of the family violence data council and have questions about the cat as to how it is being collected because approximately although old case of children abuse that are being investigated by cps are recorded to the police department somewhere too the data of c pa s and the police department we lost half of the kids i asked that question nobody could
7:42 am
answer it they're looking at the status on the commission of women gathers this information has a subcommittee to look at how they gather the data and request the dominate in the future to insure those things like that are clear if you have an opportunity to read it please do so it makes for good reading so it would be very important to look at how we collect the data to insure if it is collected appropriately. >> that's my report and the city by stalling we have harassment training and by stalling e state law that's every other year. >> but periodically. >> and the point you were making i totally agree it is important to understand the
7:43 am
rules and to continue to be up to the mark and present on the mission it is true for languages for translators as well commissioner marshall. >> i don't think we've had a meeting a commission meeting i want to acknowledge we got off to the first african-american awards and so you can add to this i thought it was great the composition we've gotten the minutes from the meeting i don't know if we scheduled the next one yet i want to say in line with thank you president obama recommendations put that in motion and i was pleased and mr. jennings you can
7:44 am
speak out. >> i've heard back from folks that was great. >> it was really productive i had a couple of advisory floor members offer to chair committees and the list of the committees so the amount of engagement and some of the confidence was tough we expect that and get to a better place the whole group can get us there thank you. >> commissioner dejesus. >> announcements i want to say that i want to remind the commission i'll be on vacation july 1st of 2016 so i'll be excused i want to make sure everybody knows. >> commissioner mazzucco. >> in reference to the recommendation of the african-american community
7:45 am
relations brltdz one the elements recruit more african-american officers and i've recently with my alma mater it looks like some of the uc berkley football players will be heading our way it is interesting i was in new york last week and whole special in the new york city news they're having an issue with trying to cite african-american officers and taylor's there's a program we're ahead of the curve on that but having the same issues we're facing with recruiting african-american i think so it is an interesting national issue we'll keep on moving forward. >> any other commission reports i do want to thank commissioner
