COUNCIL PRESIDENT LICATA TO CONVENE EXPERT ADVISORY GROUP

SEATTLE - Council President Nick Licata has identified a number of experts in the field of professional accountability in policing who have agreed to serve on an advisory group through the end of September. The membership of the advisory group and the scope of their effort will be announced early next week.

Both Chief Kerlikowske and Mayor Greg Nickels have recently agreed that some changes may need to be made to the way Seattle does police oversight. On Monday, Licata reached out to Chief Kerlikowske to begin a discussion of those changes. Yesterday, he invited the Mayor to join him in the establishment of this expert advisory group.
