SPD officials endorse Citizen Oversight of Police– Major Bruce Roberts

Posted by Arroyoribera on November 11, 2007

Spokane Police Major Bruce Roberts is grateful to the people of Spokane.  And, as reported in the Spokesman-Review, “that gratefulness transfers to his belief that citizen oversight could be beneficial to both the community and the Police Department.”

“A police department withers and flourishes based on that partnership of trust between the community and law enforcement,” Roberts said. “Citizen oversight would help establish that trust, where a committee could say, ‘Yes, people are complaining about the police, but the police are doing their job right.’ It’s a validation for the public.” (July 6, 2006 edition of the SpokesmanReview)
