  • OPD’s Policy on the Deployment of the BearCat and Other Militarized Weapons
    Analysis and OPD presentation on the use of the BearCat and the deployment of
    militarized weapons and potential Commission action on OPD’s request for a purchase of a
    second BearCat. The Commission may vote to appoint an Ad Hoc Committee on

  • Commission Letter to City Council Regarding CAHOOTS
    The program CAHOOTS (Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets) seeks to remedy the
    skill mismatch and wasted expense when police officers and EMS personnel respond to
    non-emergency mental health and health related crisis calls. The Commission will review
    and may approve a letter to the City Council to support efforts within the City Council to
    fund exploration of whether Oakland can and should implement a similar program.
