Anti-Discrimination Policy Ad Hoc Committee

The Anti-Discrimination Policy Ad Hoc Committee was established to bring to the Commission for adoption a revised internal Oakland Police Department (OPD) Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Policy (DGO D-20) that will contain guidelines and expectations for recruitment, hiring, promotion, termination, discipline, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, classification of positions, training, compensation and benefits, and related matters.

The revised internal policy is not meant to guide and direct OPD members regarding expected anti-bias behavior toward members of the public. Those proposed expectations and guidelines will be included in policies generated by other Ad Hoc Committees.
