A Suspect Stabbed and Killed a Young Man
18-Year-Old Missing Woman

Notes from the July 30, 2013 Weekly Police Commission Meeting

• Police Commissioner Rafael Bernardino said he attended the Recognition Awards ceremony held at the Deaton Auditorium last week.  He said the 37 Life Saving Awards given out represented 37 families that had their loved ones around to enjoy which made the award even more remarkable.  Commissioner Bernardino also attended the Asian Pacific Islander Forum at the Chamber of Commerce.

• Police Chief Charlie Beck informed the Board the Department is having a good year so far relative to crime rates.  He added there are currently 9,992 sworn police officers on payroll and 2,834 civilian employees.

• The Department’s report, dated July 26, 2013, relative to the mediation of biased policing & discourtesy complaints, as given by Commander Rick Webb, was approved.  Commander Webb informed the Board once the allegation was changed from racial profiling to bias policing it became apparent mediation would be a key component and the concept was introduced.  Over time details were worked out and the Department developed a pilot program.  Select bias policing complaints which do not involve use of force, criminal misconduct or injuries to any involved parties would qualify for mediation.  Mediation is done by third party mediators from the City Attorney’s office who are not city employees.  The program is a pilot program and will run for 36 months. 

• The Department’s report, dated July 23, 2013, relative to the grant application and award for the 2013 off-highway motor vehicle grant, was approved and transmitted concurrently to the Mayor and City Council.

• The Department’s report, dated July 23, 2013, relative to the destruction of obsolete duplicate records for South Traffic Division, was approved and transmitted to the City Clerk.

• The Department’s report, dated July 23, 2013, relative to the destruction of obsolete original records for Southwest Area, was approved and transmitted to the City Clerk, Records Management Officer.

• The Department’s report, dated July 23, 2013, relative to the destruction of obsolete original records for Operations-Central Bureau, was approved and transmitted to the City Clerk, Records Management Officer.
