Safe Oakland Speaker Series 

When: Wed., June 19, 7-9 p.m. 2013
Price: free

When considering ways to improve the fraught system of policing in Oakland, the examples set by other cities may prove useful. Join the Safe Oakland Speaker Series and its founder, Oakland City Councilmember Libby Schaaf, at Holy Names University's Valley Center for the Performing Arts (3500 Mountain Blvd., Oakland), for a look at what Los Angeles has done. Gerald Chaleff, LAPD Special Assistant for Constitutional Policing, will speak to how the elimination of excessive force and comprehensive accountability across the entire police force helped Los Angeles earn its release from a court-ordered consent decree akin to the settlement agreement handed to OPD following the Riders Case.
