Oakland Cops Just Standing Around

Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts has his work cut out for him — changing the dysfunctional culture of OPD, while lowering the crime rate at the same time. The Chron’s Matthai Kuruvila had interesting story over the weekend about Batts’ attempt to dramatically improve 911 response times, which have averaged an appalling 15 minutes. But the most insightful part of the piece was Batts’ observation of cops just standing around and doing nothing.
