Oakland Police Deparment Narrowly Skirts Federal Oversight

December 6, 2012

OPD, scheduled for a hearing at the Federal Building in San Francisco next week, has escaped federal oversight for now thanks to a settlement reached today between city officials, Magistrate Judge Nathanael Cousins, and approved by District Judge Thelton Henderson. The responsibility for bringing the department into compliance will fall to a ” powerful point person” paid by the city of Oakland, and reporting to Judge Henderson. For more on this breaking development, see Demian Bulwa’s SF Gate article:
