Background and the latest updates

The Spokane City Council Monday night debated late into the evening about a plan giving the city’s police ombudsman authority to conduct independent investigations into police misconduct.

More than two dozen people signed up to testify about the proposal, but the hearing didn’t start until nearly 11 p.m. and was expected to continue into early Tuesday.
