Measure LL - Establishing a Police Commission
On November 8, 2016, Oakland voters approved Measure LL with 83.19% (137,032 votes) in favor of the measure. Measure LL establishes:
- A Police Commission to oversee the Police Department’s policies and procedures, and
- A Community Police Review Agency to investigate police misconduct and recommend discipline.
Read the full text of the Measure LL ballot measure.
The City Council can approve policy that furthers the goals of Measure LL. Currently, the City Council is seeking public comment on a proposed Police Commission Enabling Ordinance. The draft Police Commission Enabling Ordinance is authored by Councilmembers Kalb and Gallo and was initially discussed at the January 24, 2017 Public Safety Committee meeting.
The public comment period will close on March 8, 2017.
Read and comment on the draft ordinance.
