Oakland Police: Chief seeks to fire two cops, discipline dozens of others

Friday, October 12, 2012

Police Chief Howard Jordan announced his intent to fire two officers, suspend 15, and demote one in the aftermath of alleged misconduct during Occupy protests. Twenty-six others would receive written reprimands. Jordan’s discipline recommendations this morning coincide with the long-anticipated release of an Internal Affairs investigation of police misconduct during the protests, and as a federal judge decides whether to place the department under federal control for its years-long failure to enact reforms.
