OCC is improving, but how could it not?

The Office of Citizen Complaints, The City’s police watchdog agency, was slapped with one of the most scathing controller’s reports in years back in 2007.

The report, “Weak Case Management and Organizational Issues Degrade the OCC’s Performance,” recommended 45 ways to improve the logjam of complaints against police officers that could sometimes lead to the statute of limitations running out against problem officers.

Well, the good news is that there has been improvement. The OCC has fully implemented 18 recommendations and has partially implemented 11. It has not yet implemented nine of the 38 recommendations that were directed solely to the OCC.

Of course, the audit didn’t really address the backlog of cases at the Police Commission. There are still disciplinary cases that have been before the commission for five years.
