Police Station Hearing:

I went to the joint meeting between the Police Commission and the Board of Supervisors Public Safety Committee in City Hall chambers last night. (Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi, Sophie Maxwell, Bevan Dufty; Commissioners Theresa Sparks, Joe Marshall, David Campos, Petra DeJesus, Yvonne Lee and Thomas Mazzucco)
Lots of tv cameras - the issue of closing down police stations is controversial - but if you review the details and data - it begins to make more sense. Just the concept that all officers would have the capability of doing their police reports from wherever they are (in their cars) instead of going to the Police Station makes sense.
