ACLU of Northern CA

The Berkeley Police Association is seeking to shut down the open public hearing process that has made Berkeley's Police Review Commission (PRC) a model for the nation since its creation in 1973. In the wake of the recent Copley Press v. San Diego County decision (which severely limits public access to the disciplinary records of police officers), the police association is hoping to exclude the public from the Police Review Commission process. The ACLU Foundation of Northern California filed an amicus brief in support of the City of Berkeley's defense of an open civilian process.
