The Glendale City Council will hold the first in a possible series of study sessions on establishing a city police commission next Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. in the council chambers.
Mayor John Drayman called for the discussions in reaction to a series of recent citizen complaints alleging police misconduct. Drayman said he expects such a commission, if established, to be a forum for public discussion and not a police review board as exists in Los Angeles. He said he didn’t know how his colleagues would react to the proposal, and hadn’t yet made up his own mind.
The issue was aired again Tuesday, when City Attorney Scott Howard rebuked a speaker for reading from the transcript of a court case filed against the city.
