Community Based Police Accountability
About the Course:
The Copwatch DeCal is age old. This semester will host weekly discussion around topics re: police in communities, co-facilitated by activists who work directly around each particular topic (Gang Injunctions, officer-invloved shootings, sit/lie, etc.). This course will also include a case study on the Oakland Police; a workshop around community-based accountability in a time where OPD will go under Federal receivership.
The "course" will also include work with the Berkeley Copwatch group, in whichever mode is most fit to the participant; direct-action organizing to monitor the police, research into specific [mis]conduct, working in the Copwatch office, organizing a Know-Your-Rights training, facilitating discussion on campus, etc. The goal is to explore ideas and concepts of policing while engaging directly with the public.
How to Enroll:
All are welcome. Come to orientation to the class on August 27.
Participants range from UC Berkeley students, to local activists, high school students, ex-police, police-in-training, etc.
