8:30 pm
up wincing violence against family members. my normal is running frathum the police, you didn't talk to police about anything. fast forward to being a supervisor and being at plaza east and having the police aufsers there and the knhunty members are saying to the police we want you here and want a relationship with you. we want to trust you. we want to make sure that our community is safe. and that is what we need to be doing. we need to focus on making sure we have the kind of police officers like yo landa williams and miriam jackson, like the folks that care about making a difference in protecting our communities in our police department. when
8:31 pm
we have a situation like the text messages or officer involved shootings we have to deal with that swiftly. i know there is process, but it is important to explain to the public what that process is. the chief doesn't have the power to fire someone, the commission has that. how do we deal with that swifter than in the past because it isn't moving fast enough. we need to make sure those thingerize clear and dealt with [inaudible] [inaudible] plagued
8:32 pm
our city for far too long. so, i have a couple of things that i want to see happen and a lot of these rementdations have already been made both by the former community police relations board as well at the nacp when reverend brown talked about when we barack
8:33 pm
[inaudible] the 300 new officers we expect on the streets. we need to make sure these officers are coming from the community and san francisco who understand the challenge of communities and how to respect while policing in the communities. the other thing is yes, we need cultural training. we need to make sure we are training people to understand we are all different. we expect you to reexpect those differences. not oppose those differences. if you have a problem with those differences, we are not
8:34 pm
indiana so you can kick rock jz go somewhere else. the point is we need to make sure that training isn't a training that can come and go dependent on budget cuts. it needs to be a required training just like the academy has driving classes and all the other things, this has to be a natural part of the curriculum and need to move for ward in that direction. finally, one of the other recommendations i have been thinging about after meeting with daniel landry and maty scott and a couple other people that brought up the community police relations. i remember christopher mohammed, mareium jackson, reverend brown and others who came up with a very very long plan of over 200 something recommendations from brushing your teeth with your
8:35 pm
right hand-i'm just kidding reverend brown. all these recommendations it was like a dissertation. i want to make sure shat we look at what those recommendations were and what are the ones we implemented, are they working and what can we continue to move forward to implement in the department. i think that we need to basically bring new life to the community police relations board. let me be clear, a community police relations board doesn't need to be created by the mayor. does not need to be created by the board of supervisors. the community police relations board needs to be created by the community and for the community of member thofz police department and the community who come together and meet regularly and who deal with challenges before they come with the department. that is what we need to do and so
8:36 pm
i'm committed to continuing to work with you all to try and implement some of these recommendations and yes, i have gotten [inaudible] recommends. there are all these recommendings being done. we all have a role to play and this is the first step in moving in that direction. it isn't a perfect solution, but if we are committed with rolling occupy our sleeves i'm committed to doing my part to support the folks who are prepared to not only work today, but work tomorrow, work the next day, work the next day because you can never let up with a problem like this. this isn't a ovnight problem. this didn't happen in 1, 2, 3, years. this is embedded sadly
8:37 pm
inl the history of law enforcement and slavery in this country, so it is up to us to be consistent and on top of the issue if we want change and i'm prepared to work with you with that >> thank you president breed. let me say i'll follow up with supervisor cohen and breed and avalos and campus. i think the hearing and the testimony has been valuable, eye opening. i'm in agreement with many from the community speakers that the racism and sexism home phobia and bias is systemic in the police department and other departments as others said. it is embedded in the culture and practices. there are patterns we have known for generation jz many years. suggestions have been brought before. my hope is the 5 of us work with colleague squz the mayor to think about how we dist rupt
8:38 pm
these patterns. it is critical that we insure we have data. whistle blower programs and reporting conduct and racism comment is critical whether the cleef can do that as a directive or whether it happens at the board level, those are questions we'll look at. screenings of officers for red flags of biases and other patterns. trainings when the academy or field training program, how we sustain key antebias and bias free type programs is critical. i like that a number of people said when you do anteoppression and bias trainings you need to involve the affective communities. those are good session versus straight up academing training. i want to thank the officers and justice
8:39 pm
and leadership for being here. reverend brown and others-[inaudible] revealed tremendous antemexican and latino and don't think that is brought out in the press as much as [inaudible] i thipg we are going look closely at the ovlap of the sessions. to daniels suggestion of having the department of justice or outside institutions look closely at san francisco, i think that is long over 37 do like other cities. i want to say this is the first of hopefully a number of hearings that we'll have. my hope is we come back in 2 month sometime in june to follow up, but i think emphasizeing the suggestions that came out of the hearings with the thought that the organizations put into
8:40 pm
are what i hope we can do with the 5 of us >> one of the things i wanted to talk about it is, one of the ways we make our priorities know is through budget. what we fund and what we downtown fund. as weget to the budget season i want remind us of this hearing. there is a series of recommends made to us, some with budget cost and some without any. we need it make sure that these over site departments such as the district attorney office and office of citizen complate have the resources they need in order to conduct fair investigations within the sheriffs department, the police department and the fire department if ever necessary. so i just want to be mindful of that as woe go into the budget season >> i'll work with you and
