A review of the May 31 looting and violence in Long Beach tops the agenda for a City Council Public Safety Committee meeting set for Tuesday, June 23.
Third District Councilwoman Suzie Price chairs that committee and called for the meeting. In addition to the review of specific events on May 31, a report about the Long Beach Police Department’s use of force policies and reporting processes is on the agenda. Opportunities for training about implicit bias and use of force also will be discussed.
Finally, City Prosecutor Doug Haubert is scheduled to talk about different prosecution models throughout the state, including the feasibility of appointing a special prosecutor for cases of police misconduct in local jurisdictions.
The meeting, like all council meetings at this time, will be via teleconference. It starts at 2:30 p.m. June 23, and the public can use the e-comment function to comment on agenda items. The call can be heard through the city’s legistar system at http://longbeach.granicus.com/.
