Wanna fight? Join the PSCAC!
Oops! too late! The council suspended it. But echoes of the infighting continue.
One side says the Public Safety Citizen's Advisory Committee (PSCAC) was hijacked by a bunch of drug legalization lobbyists. The other side says the committee was run by a group of police supporters who wouldn't let them advise on policy. One of the committee members blew up at another over the wording of a paper. The chair resigned, so did a lot of other members, turning the PSCAC into an ineffectual shell. The Chief of Police, who had to sit through the committee's meetings while the battles and drama flamed around him, got fed up and suggested dissolving the committee and forming his own.
