State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a longtime advocate for reform of BART’s police department, will hold an oversight hearing next week on the agency’s embattled police force.

On July 3, BART police officers shot and killed 45-year-old transient Charles Hill at the agency’s Civic Center station. Since then, the agency has been the focus of frequent protests, with some activists calling for the disbandment of the BART police department.

On Sept. 27, Ammiano will preside over a hearing on the BART police at the Assembly’s Committee on Public Safety at the State Capitol. The hearing will focus on the training, policies and procedures of the BART police department.



BART general manager Grace Crunican, police Chief Kenton Rainey and new independent police auditor Mark Smith will attend the hearing, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
