Aldermen on Wednesday sent to the City Council’s rules committee nearly half of the proposals their colleagues introduced as a package billed as a strategy to bolster police officers’ mental health and head off other challenges officers face.
Prior to Wednesday’s City Council meeting, a group of aldermen led by Ald. Silvana Tabares (23), Ald. Raymond Lopez (15), Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41) and Ald. Matt O’Shea (19) held a news conference announcing the legislative package with proposals that range from a hearing on officer mental health to eliminating the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, which investigates allegations of police misconduct.
