PUEBLO Hosts new CPRB Director

On August 25th at Humanist Hall, PUEBLO hosted a 'meet and greet' for Anthony Finnell, the newly hired Executive Director of Oakland's Citizens' Police Review Board (CPRB). He discussed his background and his vision for how Oakland can better hold police accountable for their conduct and remain in compliance with the standards of the Negotiated Settlement Agreement that require constitutional policing.

Mr. Finnell answered questions from the 40 residents who attended, and engaged in a lively exchange about the challenges he will face in implementing some of his ideas. He impressed the attendees with his affirmative approach to holding officers' accountable and the importance of weighing in on policy decisions, as well.
Here's a sample of how the exchanges went:
