Hammer proves a shoo-in

The Board of Supervisors unanimously voted Tuesday to appoint former prosecutor James Hammer to fill a vacant seat on the Police Commission.

Hammer, who is thought to be a potential District Attorney candidate, was previously praised by Supervisor Chris Daly as someone who will be “an immediate game changer.” 

The seven-member Police Commission is required to set “policy for the Police Department and to conduct disciplinary hearings on charges of police misconduct filed by the Chief of Police or Director of the Office of Citizen Complaints, impose discipline in such cases as warranted, and hear police officers’ appeals from discipline imposed by the Chief of Police,” according to the commission’s web site.
