San Francisco Police Commission Meeting 9/16/2020 Summary
The San Francisco Police Commission oversees the policy, top leadership and aspects of budget decisions of the San Francisco Police Department. The Board of Supervisors, which appoints some of the commissioners, ultimately controls the budget of the department. I've been live tweeting San Francisco Police Commission meetings at #sfpolicecommission for the last few months, along with a few other dedicated watchdogs. The meetings are roughly every week, on Wednesdays, starting at 5:30 pm, and are currently broadcast via Webex.
In addition to the live tweets, though, I realize it might be useful to also keep a record of major developments and findings from these meetings going forward, to help anyone working on police reform, defunding and/or abolishing the police. Since I don't wish sitting through these meetings in full on any sane person, or even reading through the hundreds of tweets. So here are screen grabs of the most important developments. Any factual mistakes are my own.
