The Oakland Police Department gives out hundreds of awards every year, for everything from good driving to fostering innovation to courageous action.
As the most prominent face of the city’s emergency response, the Oakland Police Department takes the blame for a disturbing accusation made by many in East and West Oakland: Because of their race and where they live, when they dial 9-1-1 it takes police, ambulance and fire crews much longer to respond compared to other parts of the city.
How much more did former Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan make compared to his predecessor, Anthony Batts? What was the largest salary that an Oakland Police Department employee earned in the last 13 years? How many fewer people were on the OPD’s payroll in 2012 than 2008?
In the last 20 years, few Oakland Police Department officers have been charged with criminal misconduct, even when unarmed citizens are shot and killed. That leaves alleged victims in search of justice or compensation few options: find a lawyer or represent themselves.
Sgt. Bernard Ortiz, who has been named in nine misconduct lawsuits settled by the City of Oakland, is no longer working for the Police Department, according to a recent court document.
