Everett public safety committee to discuss police policies

The meeting comes after nationwide protests over law enforcement and calls to “defund the police.”

EVERETT — On the heels of nationwide protests over law enforcement killings of Black people and calls to “defund the police,” the city council’s public safety subcommittee is set discuss its own department Wednesday.

The meeting will be streamed online at 5 p.m. tinyurl.com/EverettWAtv. On the agenda is the Everett Police Department mission and community policing philosophy, training and use-of-force policy. The police reform movement known as #8CantWait is also on the docket.

The city published its policy manual and made a page about use of force on the department’s website.

If there’s time, the committee will talk about officer mental health, police background investigations and the police complaint process.
