The Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) released the following statement today regarding the 90-day extension of the implementation and monitoring phase of the Collaborative Reform Initiative for Technical Assistance (CRI-TA) with the San Francisco Police Department:

“At Chief William Scott’s request, the COPS Office will extend the implementation and monitoring phase of the CRI-TA process with the City of San Francisco. The formal monitoring period, which began in October of 2016, will be extended to June 30, 2017. We look forward to our continued work with the San Francisco Police Department and helping to advance 21st century policing throughout the entire law enforcement field.”

The COPS Office began its CRI-TA review of the San Francisco Police Department in February of last year. The San Francisco Assessment Report is available for review here: https://ric-zai-inc.com/Publications/cops-w0817-pub.pdf.
