This is an interesting article about how to remove a member from a police oversight board. There must be a process because members of these boards can’t have absolute membership and authority. Right??? Each removal process probably varies by charter or local or state laws. From what I could follow Denver’s council passed a law to form the Police Oversight Panel which always interests me because isn’t that the legislative branch taking control of the executive branch (which controls the police department)?

Whatever no one cares.
