With a 5-4 vote Phoenix finally joins hundreds of cities across the country in doing so. After many votes, the city finally has a full ordinance to establish the Office of Accountability and Transparency. The OAT will have the ability to have independent investigations and will create greater transparency for the Phoenix Police Department. <br><br>“The testimonies we heard today from families impacted by police violence is exactly why we need this office. I am grateful for the community members who have long advocated for this change at the city. I am also thankful to the Mayor and Councilwomen Ansari, Guardado and Pastor for voting for this. The work continues and I hope you will continue to engage our office and the city in the implementation of this office."<br><br><br><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district8Newsdistrict-8District 8District 8CarlosGarciaStephanie Bracken602-769-0717602-495-5405stephanie.bracken@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/29/Stephanie_Bracken.jpgPHXDistrict8
