fairness of law enforcement thank you. >> and thank you supervisor cowen is the sponsor i'm going to turn it over to for open remarks thank you supervisor president london breed thank you for joining us thank you. i appreciate the police commissioners that are here with us commissioner president loftus welcome back to the chambers i have a few on remarks time to go over the program you can expect this evening we'll go have a few we've had opening remarks with supervisor president london breed and commissioner president loftus we'll have short remarks from two groups of people first, the mayor's office who is the director of violence prevention foreign mayor's office and secondly, from morris and
4:25 am
finally a presentation from intern chief chaplin i want to recognize a few people in the chamber with us i want to recognize joyce hicks the executive director as the former office of citizens complaints now the department of police accountability and recognize christen the chief of staff of district attorney george gascon those ladies will not be making a precautisentation but for ques if they arises and keeping my comments get to the meat of everything i want to just again articulate my commitment to move the police reform in san francisco forward the reason he called this joint hearing between the police commission and the board of supervisors because we've got serious work to do it is important we have
4:26 am
transparency and frankly all hands on deck approach to solving some of the challenges i want to also recognize a few more people sfpd thank you for joining us and your service want to recognize many communities leaders community coalitions like the justice for mario woods and felicia jones and san franciscans for police accountability and highlight ms. julia and. >> u yolanda that are here julia with the bar association and the criminal justice integrity unit and officer for justice yeah, that chateaus my list the police department is involved in the critical reforms my goal that by sitting together
4:27 am
tonight as one united body we can both increase transparency and move quickly on those reforms the last month we held a hearing in the blooper they were talking about 200 and 72 recommends that were presented and the board has also held hearing on the civil grand juries on officer-involved shootings those are difficult but critical conversations to have amongst the policymakers in the city that's exactly i didn't did work with any staff to pass the ordinance last year and really have been pleased to hear from several members of sfpd limp that the report has produced some eye opening moments from the department has been a long standing issue and
4:28 am
we are taking steps to move beyond the fact finding phase we have 5 separate report we can point to that have collectively provided 5 hundred, 5 hundred recommendations to approve our police department so why are we are doing all of this you might ask i'm hopeful with all the investigation work and the actions that we will take to implement the recommendation that we really might begin to start to gain some of the public's trust and confidence back because we received information about what improvements to the police department and in our last meeting want to focus on how the recommendations will change will be implemented paying attention to a timeline i think with supervisor campos in participate mentioned in the last meeting we need an aggressive timeline i'm
4:29 am
in disagreement to that end will be as follows: brief rangers from the mayor's office and a representative from the public defender's office and we'll hear from a presentation and updated presentation from the intern chief chaplin there's a lot of information we'll need to cover here so colleagues in order to get through this i'll ask to the greatest tint possibly hold the questions to the at the end of the presentation so the presenter can get through and than a q and a session now i'd like to bring up. >> supervisor cowen before we bring up the representative of the from mayor's office i want to give commissioner president loftus an opportunity to provide
4:30 am
remarks. >> we did that already. >> i said welcome potentially was enough in fairness i want to say on behalf of the police commission a tremendous honor to sit with the board to be in the chambers and elevates the issues we've been working on for years and committed to but gives the opportunity for community partners that work with the board and us to look at those issues together and having one conversation thank you supervisor cowen and supervisor president london breed and take a moment to thank the commissioners here i think someone said it is difficult to be in democracy when you work 9 to 5 all confirmations center jobs and families please know the commissioners that couldn't be here they wanted to be here something that commission is committed so the last thing i'll say reports before and if you're feeling cynical the change will not happen you've seen a report before the fact that we have
4:31 am

4:35 am
communities and communities of color and the police department after 6 months of working with the doj cops staff their staff worked closely to complete 2k59 analyze and public members of the committee and realized a comprehensive assessment one of the most comprehensive assessments of any police department in this nation yes, they found dishes but a police department that will have change the cops office want to build the trust in the result was 94 finding 200 plus recommended in the area of use of force bias and community policing and be accountability and recruitment and personnel practices on october 12th a little bit over thirty years of thirty days ago to the doj process conference the announcement of the report mayor

4:37 am
racial justice committee. >> good evening supervisors and commissioners and thank you supervisor cowen so for allowing me to have a few minutes to address this joined meeting and hearing and my name is demar the chair person for the racial just committee a committee of advertising in the san francisco public defender's office i'm also a member of the san francisco bar association criminal justice task force and i work on the subcommittee so for bias along with susan christian and i'd like to also indicate that julia and frank leadman members of the san francisco bar association criminal justice task force are here and available for any additional questions that you may have i wanted to just on behalf of the racial justice committee
4:38 am
mostly indicate that our public comment following the review of the report i want to acknowledge and provided a letter to all of you that have our period of time from the racial justice committee acknowledging the mayor's office and the police department and their coordination with the department of justice and completing the assessment of the police department i want to invite you to review the 10 point plan that the racial committee committee realized a couple of years ago as well as a demand letter to the supervisors earlier in this year and indicate that a lot of the recommendations that are included in the department of justice assessment were echo from points we addressed the point of racial justice committee to be committed to reform in the police department and reform from the criminal justice system in san francisco
4:39 am
so all citizens are treated equally and one of the things with respect to the assessment by the department of justice which we do finds they did a very good job and decisions but overall we agree with the vast majority of recommendations how much disappointed in finding that the assessment was unable to reach the specific conclusions regarding the incident of actual racial bias by the police department because of inner sufficient procedures within the police department i think this definitely prohibits san francisco from being able to hold the police department accountable if we don't have sufficient data i've been working with the data collection committee which headed that he julia electronically met with
4:40 am
julia from started and to analyze the procedures we can note how well and how effective the police department is operating i want to emphasis that because we have a new 79d didn't mean that 21st century policing principles are no longer applied and i think that san francisco instead of being a follower not having the technology and the tools and equipment available to be one of the leaders and role models in the policing industry that san francisco should be a beacon of light san francisco should be a leader in policing in 21st century policing and i do want to acknowledge the police department so for its efforts i indicated in the letter i submitted i'd like to make a distinction between the efforts of police department and the police officers association
4:41 am
and i would like to have the pee pee held accountable for some of the devices rhetoric it is including in the writings and literature and others social media the police department is really making an effort to move forward to be a leader in the industry and to address issues of racial bias that are not by the community there have been a division and the community in determining whether or not the police department is providing fair and unbiased policing and i think that despite the police departments effort the piano pee is hampering will where conscious or unconscious and finally indicate that despite another rest of the country being in turmoil right now and this being a time of great division i want to echo the
4:42 am
words of michelle obama she said they go low we go high and san francisco can't operate as a role model in terms of fair and unbias policing tyler to do list and reaching out to the researchers in the country in terms of - the communities feels like the san francisco police department is operating in a fair and unbias manner i'll encourage that process to happen sooner than later and the data that is collected now with respect to the body cameras is not of used to have tools in
4:43 am
place to analyze the data and in terms of policing i want to thank you. allowing me to have those comments and vertebral for any questions afterward >> thank you very much all right. chief chaplin. >> thank you for joining us this evening. >> thank you for having me. >> good evening supervisor president london breed's and board of supervisors and police commission thank you for having me for myself and my command staff important for the police department to reassure those we serve are residents business communities, commuters and visitors we're committed to insuring not only we're providing excellent law enforcement services to keep the city say but courtesy and right and compassionate in the upping presentation you'll see that the san francisco police department has been working on the way we police the city beginning in the

5:16 am
folks minded timelines and an understanding of what will happen i think you did a tremendous job of taking a number of items and shown us the process if i wasn't as close to you. my question big picture issues that came up within the department around bias and use of force around accountability that sort of maybe if you could take us back a step what's the approach that the department is talking to the issues and maybe give a couple of examples that commissioners very specific kwetz of the number of 4 willed and 79 there is a chart we'll be able to follow about the departments progress and give me an example of one or two so we can understand what we are following. >> it up commissioner i'll focus on bias bias impacts all aspects of law enforcement
5:17 am
the develop in seeking - instructors a sustainable approach to training the it personnel and certifying those and how to combat didn't and explicit violence we're talking about 200 members of the department we're talking about resources and funding issues instructors and creating an assignment in august the staff went to a training by the department of justice we developed the need in working with the department of human resources and working with the california state justice and looked creating a model to
5:18 am
training all personnel in october, november we trained the middle level captains and again building blocks continually building more we'll be a commands staff those are all building blocks that continue to grow and continue to revisit and same with the reports looking at how we are approaching the training and changing the culture and the training cycles and the training of context to insure we're getting to the issues. >> next slide, please. >> no way. >> i have a - >> if i may and supervisor cowen thank you very much captain thank you for walk us through there tremendous we have a few questions come to my minds on slides one you specifically talking about the use of force
5:19 am
reform and deesclation i was curious what will happen i don't know if you have pull up slide 11. >> is that 11. >> page 11 excuse me - >> weight of the testimony come back to slide 14 talking about around increase 50 perris from the previous year of i even that was deesclation if i'm not mistaken i said to know if you can read sweet spot numbers why there was a 50 percent increase and this is on slide 15. >> right in terms of the increase in the number of call outs a number of factors that increases the incidents of a feeling of society stressed. >> i'm sorry, i need to correct myself the housing shortage crisis new york in
5:20 am
201675 calls 50 percent increase in the previous year why the increase. >> we don't have the underlying information the society pressures for people to be - market-rate in different ways this distributed to patrol personnel understanding the slow down situation and calling mental health and crisis negotiators for different outcomes and . >> and i think you said 34 active negotiators how is that number determines officers are self-selected and gotten a training and tested and demonstrated some kind of a natural and innate ability to deescalate how are the 34 negotiators vehicle co
5:21 am
negotiators selected i think individuals that generally ascends personnel through a number of incidents articulated they have a very, very strong articulation skills and empathy and knowing quite a few of the of those negotiators you know they're the cream of the crop in terms of negotiations in the statewide mandated requirement that dictate what can be a negotiator. >> on slide 20 you gave 3 i think those are the analysis of shifting the mind setting culture with the data culture and agree i will approach 3 categories that are where change can be implemented he wanted to know exactly the departments strategy in changing at mindset
5:22 am
in the culture of the department that's you know a cultural challenging is i think we're doing it wanted to know if there is something i'm missing. >> no it is a unique trying to implement those change in the culture and data xachdz those are and confidentiality is strong leadership and strong management skills we have the management in place. >> such as i'm interested in the specification how do you change cultural. >> those are taught in accordance with the post guidelines and governed by federal case law as we integrate time and distance and decirculation we have that in the mindset of all personnel under the training and policy the policy will back up that training so we're
5:23 am
reengineering the policies and very engineering the training and insuring that also accountability and supervisors reinforcement and decirculation take i can see through the range so is this a format within the department no it is a new process couldn't create it before the issuance of a report we did know the department of justice was including the other reports so it was created for that. >> any compliments to you one thing i've heard there was consistent material was collected and then reported out
5:24 am
so good see a format and well instructions my xriementsdz to you guys a few more questions. >> just a few more questions we want to know you, you may not be urban design the best person perhaps but i want to know what we do to recruit officers of color female officers and officers from different communities in san francisco. >> so the recruitment unit is under the present standards with captain danger field have recruited community of color for the police department by the actually go out nation wide historically african-american colleges and other higher educational venues and military to identify the best candidates
5:25 am
that's a strategy that we employ. >> is there a priority given to someone that is grown up in the city and not that i'm aware of. >> so this is one of the key recommendations that potentially every one of those reports can point to we've had a lot of confusion about data collection so offered the legislation in 2016 and passed unanimously with two reporting period to the board of supervisors and this again in the forest of transparency and so i really want to know about the confusion and/or the delay of the quarterly use of force reporting can you can you talk a little bit about some of the challenges to why. >> well, for the first report a miss understanding the second reporting period there was a 3 day late our mine challenge is we have the mass and bulk collection on the data and make
5:26 am
sure the data you received is accurate so recorded tremendous amount of resources in filtering what you're getting to make sure you're getting proper information moving forward obviously we'll get a different data system and work with veerndz and/or our own internal resources to that is the collection methods and not seeing that moving forward especially with the application that is selected. >> that's good that's my next question not on the matrix in terms of you know the project management and deliverables so that is pretty dense i could have overlooked it and you talked about the collection of data we have a mature respect for the day to day picture of what we don't see and quantities many people can experience on
5:27 am
the kwntsz that experience so the doj is recommend that the san francisco police department partner with an academic to help us with the implementation of the recommendation and specifically with the analysis of data wear collecting the data and now how do we translate that data into hardcore policy changes we talk a little bit about in findings and person and evans emphasized the process that the department needs to go through in order to find that person or team of persons to help us process that data. >> once we develop the specifications for the ac dam we go through the process with the rfp that will be put out on the website. >> do we have a date when the rfp is realized.
5:28 am
>> who is on the team to determine the qualifications for the person or entities that will lay out the criteria we'll use to evaluate the person. >> the executive chief and the project sponsor and they'll identify the team members and work to create that process and insure compliance with that recommendation again that recommendation covered several reports the doj blue ribbon panel and civil grand jury is that in the 90 day priority of the section of the response in the matrix. >> i'm looking at a part in the binders i think the matrix what you're describing has a person that is the executive sponsor and the bureau and also has the priority i'm wondering if getting the rvp it rfp out
5:29 am
the door. >> you need to have that discussion with the deputy chief talking about 4 hundred and 79 recommends you have to prioritize them there are development and discussions ongoing but in terms of them falling to the highest priority we identified workplace this time period quickly the data collection development process is a laborious process so that may not be bank of the west suited doing a tremendous amount of resources up front or better yet develop a plan moving forward. >> okay. so i think my questions have been answered any final remarks we move somewhere between thirty and 60 days and put the priority in getting a data analyst in place sooner
5:30 am
than later thank you supervisor cowen supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president and thank you to the intern chief chaplin and the command staff of the department and our colleagues at the police commission i think supervisor cowen when they asked did question about the steps to reform the department was on the right track if you listen to the earlier testimony that we received one of the comments was really about the role of an outsideal be that inside force the piano pee and this is a difficult question because obviously every bargaining unit has the right to organize but this is a bargaining unit that has an outside influence on the department and they tell us barf and the barf of the working men and women of the department i
5:31 am
have profound respect is for the working men and women the of police department as a middle-class caucasian man i've had nothing about good experience with the police i've represented on and off for the last 16 years i believe that the poa despite working for wages and benefits for their members has had a profoundly co-review influence on the men and women of the department we've seen whether text-messaging scandals this is a question for the commissioners and a question for my colleagues and a question for captain conley and the command staff what steps are being taken to make the poa the 21st century organization that does not heart attack back to the 1950s we see
5:32 am
at the dawn of the 21st century. >> wow. >> (laughter) i know tell you that when this report department of justice was issued the poa issued a press release he embracing it to that point to implementation they're in support of it but can't speak to the specifics i'm not aware of the specification this is a changing time in the department the poa is aware and i believe their moving forward to o the best they can. >> wards to specification i'm in no way trying to be argumentative there is the way dda one wants remedies by the blue ribbon panel a recommendation that was made in the cops report relatively relative to shooting at moving vehicles are the subject of a grievance by the poa i mean, i
5:33 am
can't but observe this albeit it their crackal right by the wild recommendations by the extinct parties not to exceed to the united states of america so you don't have to answer that it is be troubling are in response and supervisor peskin i have been in the position in the past having to respond to concerns about the poa let's not make tonight different situation where the commissions of the retired members of poa post things on facebook and you taxi on the members of the community articulated what i've seen over the past few years a deft spirits versus a spirits point
5:34 am
police officers association has taken we are claefrtd to partner all best practices show in any union representing working people importantly stakeholders in san francisco whether that is from body worn cameras to use of force we prioritized bringing everyone to the table not only the poa but the offices for justice and the latino poa and pride alliance and prioritized to our part they have a difficult job changing every day to make sure they have the tools and equipment and ability to most san franciscans saying you know what i have a pretty good relationship we have distrust not new and an opportunity to address them head on i'll say this i'm tremendously
5:35 am
disappointed on obstruction with the best practices cso with the prohibition at the shooting at cars and prohibitions on outdated use of force ♪ chamber that was former greg suhr that led the way all of the efforts around time and distance and decirculation so i'll say in terms of account one of the remedies changing policies takes too long there's a really for the commission to play and at the department we have to take a look at the lessons we interest the use of force process we are now coming on a year in december from when we started the use of force and still don't have a policy that's not okay it takes too long i can't give you a quick answer how to hold the poa responsible but using all the levers to advance the process
5:36 am
and take the lesson to move the policy in the future much faster >> thank you. >> supervisor campos. >> you wanted to come back to you. >> its also good to see my former colleagues some of you from the police commission and thank you to the president and the members of the commission for being here i'll just be very brief we have people for public comment and want to thank the department for their presentation and the acting chief for overseeing all of that i think the problem is so fundamental a so many aspects when i speak about sort of taking some of the responsibility for some of the
5:37 am
things that have happened not just the police commission i think that is a collective responsibility that i think that members of the board supervisors the mayor and the police commission have to take i think that one of the challenges that we have here and that i have in convincing my constituents we're saviors about orange the police department and forming the office of the occ is the fact that unlike other jurisdictions where they have been incidents in san francisco we have had excuse me - a number of incidents without prejudging any of the things that happen but a number of finest not a single police to the best of my knowledge employment has been terminated.
5:38 am
>> what incidents are you talking about. >> not a single police officer that is fired as far i say that i take responsibility for that two because i actually think that something that for a lot of people especially people of color this is the problem and i think that - many respect this the the elephant in the room and we have to deal with that and i just i want to put that out there we all have in responsibilities on that and until there is some accountability i heard a lot of people that's all of what we do will continue to be a problem i honestly building that i don't mean that to be minimize what has been done but i really
5:39 am
believe that and give an example i don't know what will happen with the case the incident i said this to then chief greg suhr with the homeless man; right? whatever you think about the shooting and wlung all the questions that arise i think on the basis of failure to deescalate on that basis alone there is a strong case for termination of officers in that says whatever you think of the actual shooting in the end failure to deescalate that alone should be a basis; right? i want to make sure we don't losses site of that i think that all of this is important we have
5:40 am
to go through the process but until and unless there are consequences for some of the incidents and there is an actual you know step taken i think we'll continue to have a problem i want to say that note diminish what we are doing i respect the acting chief we've been able to work together well, in the district but i want to say that's an issue that is good that the board is involved and that's good we're talking to as bodies the police commission and the board of supervisors, the mayor but i think that is a fundamental problem we have and it is going to be an ongoing issue so i look forward to public comment and again, thank you guys for being here >> and before we move forward just we will need to take a 5
5:41 am
minute break unfortunately, the commissioners can't leave the room otherwise not a quorum we need to allow them a quick 5 minute break we'llback. >> all right. everyone thank you so much for your patience and at this time, i'd like to recognize commissioner dejesus. >> thank you, thank you thank you sxooepdz thank you for having us here and thank you for the public i want to talk about what supervisor campos said this is a real important issue we need to put
5:42 am
on the table what further discussion the reports have certainly said the department shouldn't be investigating itself this is a critical vlgdz vlgdz and i know the former occ now will be investigating every shooting or every you know shooting or killing that comes in so the real question and right now the department does the heavy listing the department is at scene and the counting of the bullet they do the heavy lifting if they're not investigate themselves who is going to do that i can if the we had the internal affairs and in terms of investigating whether the conduct or out of policy we have the occ now that will do this the department provides information for the occ but the
5:43 am
key in question is the police department doing the heavy left or the da do very this the resources or turnover they are fox to the occ the da takes over the actual investigation are they going to coordinate and turnover information i know the department and da are working on a memorandum of understanding of what will do what we need to include the accountability within that so from the da ends up doing the heavy lift this is something we note to talk about that that determines that investigation really determines whether there will bring charges or misconduct that is something
5:44 am
we need to talk about do we take that away from the department completely the cops suggested if they don't do their own investigation the other one i want to talk about i know that we talked about groups stakeholder groups we talking about working with groups on this in the process my understanding is that some of the way that the department is considering setting up having a member of the police commission and the mayor's office and then having peripheral stakeholders like the stakeholders this is kicked around i think outside the box as a narrow very narrow stakeholder group i think outside the box had this be broadened and consider having people on the racial just and the bar association and other organization their active on this to have them as
5:45 am
shareholders actual stakeholders in terms of moving forward i know we need to move forward quickly the butt input we take in terms of policy or training or whatever it should be a broad diversity of opinion rather than internal opinion with the occ and the poa so i think that is something we need to consider and the data i'm concerned about the data because what i heard the department say to come up with what they need a request are for proposal i got the impression to consultant consult with a consultant and move forward to actually hire someone to hire someone in a way to analysis that information and i think that the chief talked about the request for
5:46 am
proposals that archaic we not necessarily know how many rfp and it is as long process and the chief had ideas this is something that needs to be put on a burner fast burner and make sure the people experts in the field are able to get access to- i'm concerned about this type of process and concerned about us developing whatever data before we meet with an expert those are some of the thoughts that i have we have a broader workshop including stakeholders in the actual community as well as the bar association and things like that. >> thank you
5:47 am
supervisor avalos. >> thank you supervisor president london breed. >> i want to just voice any appreciation for all of that background work on the effort of isn't it true police reform and looking at the data the finding and recommendations that came out of those two reports that is significant and it shows an effort around accountability and transparency i think that we have requested that we get a sense of what the recommendations are that will be prioritized and working on getting a number of 44 i feel in a way i have a receipt didn't doesn't show i won't be here but the 4 priorities that what are
5:48 am
how are they 3wr0ekd in terms of our categories use of force or bias and police and hiring personal practices that is important when the next time we present to share that out there those categories understand the use of force what is the first one you'll work on in terms of that already you've shared some of the work the implementation of the decirculation and time and distance and you've touched think outside the box that but so many other recommendations that we've seen that are you know discussed i don't want to get into the weeds as much have in writing before the next hearing at the board of supervisors so that's my recommendation i won't eastbound here to receive that but i expect i'll be watching as a citizen not a
5:49 am
supervisor at that time, but we all are really from the election last week and we know that real changes with coming down in san francisco we had and across the country in terms of transformation police reform the backstop of the 21st century president obama report from the doj well our doj very, very different i'm concerned how to uphold the principles from the 21st century report in the face of what the effects will be trying to you know put forwarding in terms of law and order and presidency and get to the poa i'm really concerned about how much we have to be very vigilant with the instruction the poa will be creating here in san francisco
5:50 am
the leadership of the police officers association had done a lot that payroll supporting the republicans and 84 percent of the city voted for clinton did you sent money to the republican policy and voted but the poa - 71 percent wanted to repeal but the poa do not to oppose it 69 percent voted against prop 66 that expected the death penalty. >> the poa to defend that we know that the resources are moving us back in the 21st century policing by the obama administration i think we need to be much stronger as a city to figure out how to bring them to
5:51 am
the kind of reform and vision of the policing that is about building trust with communities our goal in terms of reform with that, i'll keyed my time. >> supervisor peskin and thank you to madam president and commissioner president loftus one widening place of agreement at the board was funding this was a priority that is mayor shared with us funding the investigation bureau that he district attorney's office with an of the questions from time to time at the board what is the status of mou is i have the competitive up here i'll ask him that request chief chaplin. >> i've been issuing to get
5:52 am
to. >> we're in the efficiently phases of the mou my understanding from the da and this was said earlier but he's in the final process of hiring the advertising for that position the mayor opportunity the position for the excellent bureau we're finalizing the mou with regards to the police department and the da how that will work out with the investigation but you know again, it is going to be with them taking the lead in the interview process we're finalizing get into the weeds we're close to the finish line and negotiated with that body and the mayor's office with regards to funding the position my understanding he put out the job announcements he's in the process or phil i don't want to jump being so information i have no full knowledge but cattle he
5:53 am
was close to filing those positions. >> without putting a finer point getting into the weeds and what the mou will be entered into any timeframe estimate. >> i think we're fairly close and within the next month or so. >> thank you, chief. >> thank you seeing no other names on the roster, i will open up for public comment for public comment. there any comments? so if there are folks from the public that want to comment on the hearing please come forward. >> ms. jones welcome. >> thank you two minutes okay so first, let me say i'm felicia jones what the disparticipants in the justice for mario woods my first point would be to
5:54 am
supervisor peskin and i just want to say you have good relationships with the police department. >> as a community advocate i wish mario woods would be here to say the same thing and jessica williams to say the same thing and alex i wish louis were here so he could say the same thing and cutting-edge technology and others were here those of us it is disheartening to say that to you only the
5:55 am
other things the focus on bias the training of captains and lieutenants is not enough working with a par military organization even though this is from the top down you stop at the two a lot of times with the culture the culture will not change we got to get real and my other they know who police officers the police the executive team i don't know the commissioners name of the year she said to you have the mayor and the police commission and have police chief. >> thank you, ma'am. >> thank you, ma'am. >> next speaker, please. >> thank you.
5:56 am
>> police for accountability two minutes is not enough to address the issues but the during the course cops found in bias they found in data in the center of tech innovation why is that that sfpd and it's it department it in the stone age i'm hoping not willful blindsness this must change just you guys know boston hired a world-class audit firm we need that that san francisco having an academic on board is important as far as writing an rfp and you know being closely involved in the process ac democrats we need to know exactly what our data and need
5:57 am
to get working on that quickly also let me pick up my remarks from previously given the trump quake they'll feel enbelonged how will we maintain the remorseful i think by building the grassroots civil society organization and institutions for affordability and by local government working with them collaboratively. >> given the trump quake the only way for san francisco to retain the progressive values. >> move forward to be a beacon of hope in a dark night to break down the community between the
5:58 am
community and this board i hope that will happen. >> thank you, sir. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening. i'm david i have two items of constructive notice and something about the police officers association the first, the transcription on those videos are horrible i think that there actually a vision of brown act they need to be fixed the second thing is good this is a joint meeting because this involves the revenue stream not only of city and county but thought state and something that is under the jurisdiction of police there are hundreds and hundreds of cars driving around san francisco that have dealer plates their uber cars those are cars not paying tax and 245i driving willfully i'm seeing them from all over the states
5:59 am
those are dealer plates innovate with passengers and all sorts of things trucks with the loads in them so this is constructive notice for the police department to start enforcing the laws an dealer plates and the next police officers association i was shocked to hear the commissioner was unhinged with a police officers association i think a grand jury should be worked on with the police officers association as if their organized crime if you look at the idea they're creating a situation they're claiming immunicipality from investigation in mcallister's in deaths in all sorts of in tune behavior and they're creating a crosswalkal arrangement that is failure to investigate the truth
6:00 am
of situations this - and the contracts with the city and county of san francisco be - >> thank you, sir. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening supervises and police commission we understand that you guys are exhausted but we've been here for just as long and we're still here i'm clem the district 6 and the chair of the unemployment commission i'm here to reiterate things that the commissioners said in past commission meeting in the new police chief those encourages the appointment of a chief that is in line with the characteristics and recommendations within our budget and policy priorities as in the bp p we need a chief that
6:01 am
will impact with people on the school grounds and officer skills and best practices for working with young people that are yountd e groubtd in development of incorporate scenarios of real live implication with young people in those training components and thus giving the officers to apply the skills the last thing i want to say as our elected officials you guys come into our neighborhoods and tell us how important to center a voesz a lack of voice contributing thought decision maker and not acknowledge us as an important body in the room is discouraging and disheartening so we are the ones directly impacted by the
6:02 am
decision maker you guys make and those are issues for the youth to give their public comment i ask you give them your undivided attendance thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening board of supervisors i'm here to spoke speaker for my brothers and sisters who were not here i'm also to speak for the other organizations that came out not to stay as long as we could the project was united playaz and others as youth we are effected and me and my brown skin i've been searched because i live in the neighborhood but no way i'm the vice chair the commission and a junior at the san
6:03 am
francisco state university to urge the police commission to look at the budget priority policy priorities we urge you guys do please be mindful and how do i say this to be more sensitive around arrest our youth on campuses and arresting them in front of of the parents and around trump to be sensitive around the youth and undocumented youth thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> hello, everyone i'm a senior at the lowell high school i'm a mayoral appointee to me communication is the key to southern california all problems bossing nerk verbalize their concerns and be able to take those concerns take into consideration to make people's
6:04 am
lives easier this is a simplified and easier said or done but police in communication are equal to non-compliant in san francisco i feel like the sfpd is not doing enough for hear our voices we are literally 9 future and as cliche as it sounds if you don't show an honest to make sure that the youth relationships are on a positive tune ear adding to distrust within our community coming from my neighborhood where police presence running into police presence positive relationship is key because if not results in a lot of unnecessary problems so, yeah so sorry respect crucial - twruft is crucial if you want to see process you have to tarot
6:05 am
with the youth that is going on 9 o'clock we had a lot of people that would have liked to speak we have to go tomorrow i have to wake up at the foufshs but tell her youth that want to participate in things like that this is difficult to do that you obviously see you know a low number of youth so i want everyone to take into consideration in planning meetings in the future. >> thank you for your comments. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening polar vortex and supervisors it is still calm; right? that's how i see my days sometimes good and bad at the end of the day i'm living in district even this 10 this is my second year on the youth commission i think my fellow
6:06 am
commissioners reiterate what is already been said please include the things that directly effect us the general point has been - in the past in the youth commission meeting with the department it is pretty much at the time of parents arrest from the child is not under that policy effects me as a formally - child of formally incarcerated parents that effects me it is hard having to live away from a parent that is called dad and having a parent in prison is unfair and seeing them arrested for the last time is brings angle gush and seeing a parent arrested is like - and is also when our trying to
6:07 am
change you're thinking of changes and the voice to change it can be bad i want to reiterate that and just to say that we need to progressiveness within the sfpd when our looking through a different less than not use the past strategies maybe it worked in the past but starting to look at it at a different angle in a positive way i wish people sunshine could are have been present to share their experiences with the police but at the same time having youth to come up here and tell you you policymakers. >> thank you, commissioner. welcome president matt >> hi my name is a madeline i'm a senior at the urban school of san francisco and the chair of the youth commission so as we talk about the new policies i'm
6:08 am
reflect on the policies success in the past there's a memorandum of understanding between the sf police department and the sf school board and we really not to see that implemented yes. the youth commission received a complicate about mroebt cops arrest youth at a san francisco high school in front of their classmates and limited communication with the school personnel that could have helped to avert that situation we ask implementing the memorandum of understanding and making sure that the implementation that the training we've recommend for all police officers around interacting with youth is implemented as police officers are hired thank you very much for listening to the youth and trying to coordinate we know that is late we really, really
6:09 am
appreciate your time. >> thank you for your comments. >> next speaker, please. >> commissioner president loftus i want to thank you for pointing out the oak rep analytical i've spoken with him one reason we came here the presentation was a lack of action by the am i correct? my son was in his senior year of university and never in trouble any son was sdaulthd by plain clothes officers vp anthony montoya and was unlawfully jailed for the night first thing in the morning he went to the dr and to the, llc ways physically hurt they took photographs and advised not to file a complained until the charges were dropped the public defender's office in the alu then begin working with

6:12 am
saying that chief suhr was dragging his feet i am not only again, the dash cam take to along the committee was made up of 8 officers 8 advertising from alu with the bar all the advertising and one regular person i don't remember here name may be one the commissioners know but 17 members on the committee figuring out how it will go one regular person and 8 police officers association and 8 paid lawyers this is not how you run a railroad thank you. >> next item. >> and it is hastening to
6:13 am
witness this to consider the recommendations of any reports relating to police reform in san francisco i hope the first of many such working sessions between the departments undoubtedly there's more work to do and like to thank the san francisco police department for being open to the findings and recommendations change it difficult we get this is something we must deal with each the reports is a culmination of research and analysis and throughout the goal of the c g j report not to serve as as indictment but a road map for change and road map for reform and road map for success a road map can bring the city to a better place it seems save to say most of reports have the same goal in mind as those reforms continue and discuss
6:14 am
change i ask all the departments from the mayor on down to commitment to the following be transparent, shushing off - be ready to change be thoughtful don't be political review not only the wording of the recommendations but the spirit in which they're written and intended utilize the community shareholders and finally remember that we're all ♪ together only by work together will we be able to have a result in a better sfpd and as states one that serves as a role model for the whole nation >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> immigration supervisors and commissioners and the chief he wanted to
6:15 am
brought to your attention one of the comments that supervisor campos i want to echo on behalf of the community in any district we really appreciate the fact you're working towards change and reform but one of the main concern is trust in building a community and at the same time building a community that happened in a lot of the district especially my district district 8 we suffered the loss of 9 individuals at the hands of police officers and yet we still have not gotten an answer in the district attorney if he will provide charges to the police officers responsible for that but also need to hear that something is done about that it is great we have a lot of policy and systems in place to you know reform but again, if we're not addressing the issues the community their own police
6:16 am
officers will not do their jobs effectively we want to support them but at the same time want to feel r79d and protected not feel front yard we walk down the street when we see a police officer so again, all time and time again, i've asked any neighbors how they feel with the work that the supervisors did they're supportive but want to feel safe i'm here to ask you to consider amongst the accommodations of the blue ribbon panel and the department of justice that you include something around building a relationship with the community adjourned. >> please i said to take wish with that

in the use of force order how can we get to through 1/3rd of recommendations that are presented with the union it continues to resist change the process lacks transparent and seems to be substantive not to mention allegations of commissioners speaking pubically and posturing and stating who they want to be the next chief this is inappropriate we must stop right now we must show that we representative reform we must show we support transparent what i want to do the right thing in the eastbound selection of the next chief the chief i've stated need to be one that has a proven track record and is a viable candidate that will be of our interest to everyone i stand before you also extremely troublgd by the san

7:18 am
there was recommendations that ended upcoming to this body that were approved and we're not put in place and waiting for the police officers to do a meet and confer with the police officers association it, it is in police officers association - in terms of having the least accountability possible when those processes go forward that shouldn't be in your interests it is a different perspective how to have an audible police department and public safety in terms of not using extensive use of force as well so we just want to strongly recommend because as we are halting those things they have policies that are the old policies that are currently in play we have for example, on the vehicle shootings shooting at
7:19 am
vehicles happening about every 8 months in san francisco so you know we really need to move along and have a very strong use of force policy the department of justice is recommending a full ban on shooting at vehicles should be moving forward the other two recommendations is that came from the community groups should be moving forward as well us from the ebs coalition of homelessness interface with police officers we're particularly concerned thank you thank you, ma'am. >> next speaker. good evening and welcome. >> hello, i grew up in lake view ingleside area you know something i at ocean view park i was beat up in the early noticing by the police
7:20 am
at ocean view park i mean it was just it was an all the time occurrence being seen you know what will happen to our music i know like ours is a moving the fact of the matter you know and it's been ongoing for so long and now instead of the abuse they shooting you know they really shooting and you know something this really has to stop because you know my niece and nephews is coming up i want them to say a normal life you know i don't feel you know that they have to worry about protecting themselves or being a place afraid to run when they see the police you know and if this was
7:21 am
- the car was supposedly moving not supposed to be shooting at or no chase especially a residential neighborhood so they say if it was a high-speed chase you you know and it wasn't like a whole bunch of crime activist take place in the area you know so i wonder why you know this person you know was targeted and why his family can't see him this is never unheard of and what is really going on with the on wooits is in jail it is totally not right and his house got rated why? because he was a witness to the police nothing new nothing new so i hope we can make a difference if not maybe -

7:43 am
7:44 am
7:45 am
was asked to do is water system improvement program and one thing i looked at is about the 4.8 billion dollars wurthd of work and a lot of the work was regional. we looked at how can we make sure that we provide opportunities for san franciscan's and people in the region and so we looked at ways we can expand our local san francisco lb program. so, we thought about it and worked with general manager at the
7:46 am
time to form an advizry committee to talk about how to include local businesses in the region. >> i was on the first committee back about 10 years ago and the job changed over time. in the beginning, we just wanted people to know about it. we wanted to attract contractors to come into the system which is a bidding system and bid on some of these projects. our second job was to help the sfpuc to try to make themselves more user frndly. >> i like that they go out of their way, have contractors trying to teach and outreach to small businesses and lots of creative ways. help the community as well. there is so much infrastructure going on and repair, new construction that i think is helping to get construction back on its feet.
7:47 am
>> my faiv rlt part of the committee has been that we have played a opportunity for many small businesses. [inaudible] women owned business to come in and [inaudible] sfpuc. it is a great opportunity because some are so small they have been able to grow their companies and move up and bid other projects with the sfpuc. >> everyone i was talking about with any contractor [inaudible] and super markets and things like that and i realize the transition was on the sfpuc. he got that first job and knows about the paperwork qu schedule and still works on this type of
7:48 am
job, but he works with general contractors that also did other things. pretty soon it is like he did that one and that one. it completely changed his business. >> my name is nancy [inaudible] the office manager and bid coordinator for [inaudible] construction. worked on 10 plus puc, lbe contracts. today we are doing site maintenance on the [inaudible] chr site and currently the gentlemen behind me are working on every moving and basic specs of plants. in order to be success you need to work hard, bid low and keep a look at the sfpuc website for future bidding opportunity. >> this is a successful program because it provides
7:49 am
opportunities to regional communities that might not have opportunities to work for large scale projects. the sfpuc is a fortunate agency we have a lot of capital program that span over 7 counties who also to see how some businesses like [inaudible] and bio mass started as small micro businesses grow and expand and stay in the program and work on several projects before they graduate from the program. that is what warms my heart. >> my name is college willkerson, the principle for bio mass. bio mass has been in business since 2006. 3 partners. small businesses fill a niche but apply and being a part of the program
7:50 am
helped us be more visible and show the city and county of san francisco we can also perform services. >> this program had tremendous impact to the region. in fact, the time we rolled the program out was during the recession. this has h a major positive impact and certified over 150 firms in the rejen and collectively awarded $50 million in contracts, and because of the lbe certification it open many opportunities to work with sfpuc. and, i significantly helped the business. it is one of the major contributors to our success.
