Posts tagged: Police Guild. police ombudsman
The Spokane City Council voted late Monday to delay a police ombudsman ordinance and a labor contract with the Police Guild in a pair of voice votes.
The city clerk this morning confirmed that the vote to defer the ombudsman ordinance passed 5-2 with council members Nancy McLaughlin and Jon Snyder voting no. The vote to defer the contract passed 4-3 with McLaughlin, Snyder and Councilman Mike Fagan voting no.
Both issues were deferred until Feb. 3 to give more time for parties to reach an agreement that meets language of a voter-approved city charter amendment calling for independent ombudsman investigations of police wrongdoing.
