Two complaints were reviewed, one that was sustained and one that was exonerated. A. Craig asked if
we would be viewing video of either incident and W. Muhammad stated that videos are only watched
if a case is appealed. F. Redmond asked if we would find out the results of the discipline given to the
sustained case and J. James questioned why the public doesn’t get more details and why we are not
more transparent. D. Bukala stated that police officers have the right to privacy of their personnel
record just like all professions but also stated if it was a criminal issue then more information would
be available for the public.
F. Redmond inquired on whether personnel records are backed up.
