From the Reporter
The Shift
In order to maintain core functions like patrol and homicide investigations, the San Diego Police Department has cut internal oversight and programs aimed at monitoring an officer’s performance.
Why It’s Become Relevant
Ten San Diego police officers are under investigation, accused of misconduct or crimes as serious as rape under the color of authority. The mayor has called for changes. The police chief plans to beef up internal oversight and review procedures.
What I Found Most Interesting
Those responsible for monitoring officer activities have been disproportionately impacted by recent financial pressures to keep positions vacant and save the city more money.
