Oakland Police Alter Crowd-Control Policy

April 25, 2012  | 

The Oakland Police Department will implement "major reforms" in crowd-control tactics, as a result of Occupy protests that resulted in injuries and widespread use of tear gas last fall triggered hundreds of abuse complaints, Chief Howard Jordan announced Monday.

The department agreed to improve crowd-control training, use small groups of officers to isolate troublemakers, and give clearer dispersal orders before arresting protesters, Jordan said.

Department monitors will soon release a report on the department's handling of Occupy protests, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Ya, the major reforms per Madam Mayor, let them do what they want, "until it makes the news, and I look bad". OPD is under staffed, and not supported by anyone in the mayor's office. They have watch groups all over Oakland trying to find OPD officers "violating civil rights" (that means stopping someone from committing a crime, or arresting someone in the commission of a crime)
