This year’s Picnic Days went smoothly except for one incident between under-cover Davis Police and a group of people in the street. The police were in plain clothes and came in an unmarked van.
The witnesses’ accounts and the police report are very different. Perhaps a third party could investigate to learn what factually happened and to find a better way to handle such an incident in the future.
The City of Davis has a Police Auditor, and the Auditor could be the one to investigate.
Our Chief of Police has every confidence in him and his thoroughness. It is troubling that the Auditor has not as yet been allowed to investigate.
An impartial Police Auditor is good for the Davis Police Department and the community. The Auditor should be allowed to do his job.
