1. Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan has decided to curtail the role that William Bratton, the former head of the New York and Los Angeles police departments, will have in the city, the Trib and Chron report. Bratton, who is on a consulting team that is helping Jordan formulate a comprehensive crime-fighting plan for the city, was originally supposed to be involved in a community-engagement process, but Jordan decided to limit Bratton’s role to mostly behind-the-scenes work because Bratton has generated a firestorm of controversy in Oakland. Jordan has also said that OPD will not adopt the aggressive, zero-tolerance form of stop and frisk that Bratton used in New York.
