Anaheim Police Shooting

Citizens' Board Could Investigate Anaheim Police Shootings

City Council throws support behind efforts

The City Council may establish a citizen's committee to investigate police excessive-force allegations following protests concerning officer-involved fatal shootings.

On Tuesday night, the council unanimously asked the city manager to develop a full plan for a police-oversight board, which the council could consider at some point.

The idea for police oversight stems from weeks of unrest over the summer following a series of fatal police shootings, particularly of two Latino men a day apart in July.
