San Francisco Proposition G: Police Department Oversight Amendment
Shall the City amend the Charter to rename the Office of Citizen Complaints as the Department of Police Accountability (DPA); require the DPA to review the San Francisco Police Department’s use-of-force policies and its handling of claims of police misconduct; allow the DPA to audit or review any SFPD policy, procedure or practice; specify the City records that the DPA may access to perform its duties; and provide that the DPA would separately submit its budget to the Mayor.
A “Yes” vote means:
A yes vote is a vote in favor of renaming the Office of Citizen Complaints as the Department of Police Accountability (DPA), requiring the DPA to review police use-of-force policies and incidents, and giving the DPA access to certain records and documents.
A “No” vote means:
A no vote is a vote against this proposition, thereby leaving the city’s Office of Citizen Complaints (OCC) intact and with unchanged responsibilities and duties.
