Civilian Oversight of Police




At the last government study meeting the subject of discussing a civilian oversight committee was brushed off by a few party loyalists who don’t feel the need and want the State to address civilian oversight of the Police departments. Given the latest news about the evidence officer and missing money and the shear brutality we all witness on TV over the past few years, I ask, the mostly voyeuristic members of this group, should Framingham have civilian oversight of the police department? Should residents and visitors have a way to both complain and complement our police force?
