Police ombudsman debate runs late into night

The Spokesman-Review
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. Look for more coverage of the Council’s decision online Tuesday and for ongoing developments in Wednesday’s print edition.
