BART’s police civilian review committee will meet on Monday to discuss the officer-involved shooting of Charles Hill, the first such session since the agency released a videotape of the fatal encounter.
Created last year by state legislation, the civilian review committee has met just one time, and some BART board directors have criticized the slow pace of the new body.
While the review committee will address some basic bylaws for the body (officers, scheduling), it will also hear an update on the July 3 shooting of Hill, who was fatally shot after police said he attacked them with knives and an open bottle.
Unlike BART’s board of directors, the civilian review committee has access to police officers’ personnel records and they can recommend disciplinary measures. The review committee works with the agency’s new independent police auditor, a position also created by the 2010 state legislation.
The civilian review committee will meet at 9 a.m. on Monday at the agency’s headquarters in Oakland.
