special city council vote on mayor libby shafts plan committing to new hires. but as ktvu investigative reporter evan sernoffsky tells us experts say more officers may not be the only thing needed. we recognize that people feel very disturbed by all the violence as homicides continue to surge in oakland, many leaders say the city's police forces woefully understaffed. it's a stark change in rhetoric from the calls to defund the police from just a year ago. but as oakland leaders are set to vote on a plan to hire more cops on tuesday, one obvious question stands out. do more police equal , less violent crime. we found that police reduced homicides overall, benjamin hansen says yes, he's an economics professor at the university of oregon, whose research focuses on crime. he co authored a study that looked at the effects of adding more police in a city it found
11:19 pm
that every 10 additional officers stop around one homicide and even as many african american communities have raised questions about over policing. the study found that more cops leads to fewer murders of black civilians than white civilians per capita. so that's what suggest on one hand, the black civilians can actually accrued uniquely large benefits from increases in police force. but the study also found, adding more police has profound collateral consequences. most notably arrests for low level offenses in black communities go way up for capita. those effects were much larger for black civilians than they were for white civilians. the result has been more distrust of police in those same communities were officers can help reduce violence. most. experts say the recent national rise in violence shows that policing can only go so far in keeping the peace making sure that we bring a sense of safety to our community
11:20 pm
is critically important in these additional officers will definitely help. police chief laurent armstrong says oakland already has the tools to reduce the violence at seeing. programs like ceasefire and the department of violence prevention have sought to use police more effectively by engaging the community when you have high trusting community community members share information. they are willing to participate in investigations because we all have this agreement that we have to work together in order to achieve safety and for context here. oakland leaders are not proposing unusual police staffing numbers. they've been losing around 10 cops a month through attrition and want to get back to pre pandemic staffing levels. in the newsroom . evan sernoffsky ktvu, fox two news. some of the state's largest school districts say they're changing how students earn grades districts including oakland, sacramento, los angeles and san diego, are all phasing out grades below a c for high school students. instead
11:21 pm
students who fail a test or don't complete their homework would be able to retake a test there or get more time to turn in assignments. the idea is to encourage students to learn the course material and maintain their chances of getting into the university of california and california state university. a state of emergency has been issued in hawaii due to some serious flooding in the forecast . this is what it looked like at the monarchy a summit on the big island over the weekend, up to eight inches of snow fell below the summit. the area was also hit with wind guests about 80 miles an hour. the unusual weather is part of a strong system moving through that region that forecasters warned could cause catastrophic flooding between 10 and 15. inches of rain are expected across the islands in the next few days. yeah, it looks like the worst of us right now, over the next three hours on a wall, who were there getting heavy rainfall rates up to two and three inches an hour. it's just coming down and it's coming from a side. it's coming from a low
11:22 pm
pressure, so it's hitting the west side of the islands more than the east side of the north side, so they're really just makarska and those areas are just getting torrential, torrential rain and that's going to last through the night in a bit into tomorrow and the next day, but the main event is literally tonight. so these are the highs from today the warmest spots in the bay area. just into the low fifties. although morgan hill hit 62. they got a little sun coming out there, but most of us had fog and clouds all day . as you look at oakland, you can see it's dressed up for the holidays. no fog right now. we've got this week weather system going through. we've talked about it. here it is. it goes through. another one goes through thursday, and another one really hits us on sunday, and that's the main event. but when that weak system goes through tonight, which is doing now it'll kind of mix out. the fog makes a little tougher for it to form. doesn't mean it won't be there in the morning when you wake up not as widespread but all over the place. it won't be just one big block of fog like it was today. by monday night, we looked like we could have up to almost three inches of rain in san francisco
11:23 pm
. that's the beginning of the atmospheric river sunday into monday looks real wet tuesday, wednesday look good as well and even a little beyond that, so keep our fingers crossed. it's taken a whole week to get this ridge of high pressure out of here, right? i mean, not when we the whole week. it's take. it's been here three weeks, but it's taking this is going to take this entirety this week, plus these two week weather systems to push it down. and bring our wet weather back to the to the region. so as you look at the current temperatures, you can see it's upper forties. mid forty's. that's where the dew point are, too. so fog will form as soon as this system leaves here. we are at one in the morning and you see it. it's just not. it's a non event. in terms of accumulation, and so is thursday and non event and in terms of accumulation, but in terms of doing its job and knocking that high down and setting us up for a big event on sunday, monday and beyond is doing really, really well. so that's the plan next few days kind of cloudy temperatures on the mild side. i'll see you back here tomorrow night. we'll see you then. bill. thank you coming
