Community Oversight of Policing in Berkeley Webinar this Saturday, March 13th

On Saturday, March 13th from 4:00 to 5:00pm, the city of Berkeley will hold a webinar to clarify the role and process for applying to the Police Accountability Board (PAB). Speakers will include Mayor Arreguin, Councilmember Kate Harrison, Police Review Commission (PRC) Commissioner Nathan Mizell, PRC Officer Kathy Lee, and as Event Moderator, Hector Malvido.  After presentations, there will be time for questions and public comment.

Join via ZOOM To join by phone, dial 1-669-900-6833 and enter Meeting ID 869 0814 7095.  

Ask questions during the Q&A or submit question in advance to: The Police Review Commission : 

This online event is a follow up to the November 2020 election, during which Berkeley voted yes to Measure II. As a result of the election, the PRC will end and a more powerful body called the PAB will begin its work in July 2021. 

To kick things off, the city of Berkeley is reaching out to community members who might be interested in being part of the new PAB. Anyone familiar with community organizing, police procedures, and/or police oversight, is encouraged to apply.

The application deadline is on March 29, 2021.
