Councilmember Garcia’s Statement on Phoenix Police Challenge Coin Investigation https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-8/1749City Council District 82/8/2021 8:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1749/Newsroom_Council_Statement_08.jpgCouncilmember Garcia’s Statement on Phoenix Police Challenge Coin Investigation <div class="ExternalClassD4B1110FA6B245328396987044A88668"><html> <p>​"The news reports from this weekend on a harmful challenge coin created by Phoenix Police Department officers and the subsequent reaction to call for an overdue investigation clearly demonstrates that community members have been right in calling for independent investigations. The Office of Accountability and Transparency should be set up to do exactly that. The public does not have trust in the Phoenix Police Department handling its internal affairs. We have already seen officers remain on the job after internal investigations go nowhere. There is no accountability. We do not need more examples of this inefficiency. We need the Phoenix City Council to act and establish the Office of Accountability and Transparency and hold the wrong-doers in the department accountable."<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district8Newsdistrict-8
