Public listening session with DOJ to be held tonight

The federal body reviewing the San Francisco Police Department will hold its second public listening session on police conduct tonight in the Mission district.

Representatives from the Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services are holding the series of town hall events to hear from San Francisco residents about police conduct in The City.

The review was requested by Police Chief Greg Suhr and Mayor Ed Lee in reaction to the killing of Mario Woods in the Bayview in December.

The first listening session, held last month, had a much lower turnout than similar listening sessions held in other cities, a COPS official said.

The 6 p.m. hearing will be held at Mission High School at 3750 18th St.
