Police union last obstacle in Brady policy 

The list of officers identified as having disciplinary records that could have affected their testimony in court because of the Police Department and District Attorney’s Office lack of what is being referred to as a “Brady policy” is as good as finished.

But don’t expect to know the full scope of the issue until late next week. The Police Department is working with the union that represents officers, the Police Officers Association, to ensure confidentiality isn’t breached, police Chief George Gascon told the Police Commission on Wednesday.

That doesn’t mean that those officers aren’t being identified in cases that are currently going to trial. It does mean, however, that defense lawyers will have to wait for a while to start looking back on old cases for dismissal.
