Statement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio – New Attack on Our Police Planned for Mayor’s Policy Agenda This Coming TuesdayStatement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio – New Attack on Our Police Planned for Mayor’s Policy Agenda This Coming Tuesday<div class="ExternalClassBD30019A77DF448AB36080B00C147912"><p>​After losing their last call for an investigation of our brave men and women in blue, the radical left is planning another all-out assault on the integrity and conduct of our officers at the upcoming Phoenix City Council Policy session this Tuesday, Sept. 12th. </p><p>"It is time to tell these radicals that enough is enough: Phoenix stands behind the thin blue line. These agitators are the same people who caused the problems at the rally, and now expect to be rewarded for bad behavior," said Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio. </p><p>The Phoenix City Council is planning on hearing and voting on the creation of a citizen review panel overseeing police actions.  Unfortunately, the history of these panels in other jurisdictions is clear: they do nothing to improve public safety, hurt morale in the police force, and work to create – rather than settle – controversies. This is the last thing Phoenix needs. Right now, a thorough review of the incidents of Aug. 22 is already underway, and any effort to subvert that process would be a mistake. </p><p>This item will be added to the Mayor's Policy agenda which is set for Tuesday Sept. 12 at 2:30 p.m. at the Phoenix City Council Chambers, located at 200 W. Jefferson St. </p></div>9/8/2017 4:00:00 PMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
