LAPD officials will release public summaries of use-of-force incidents and officer discipline under a plan approved Tuesday by the Police Commission. The five-member panel appointed by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa approved the plan as a way to improve relations between the Los Angeles Police Department and communities where there has been historical conflict. “There’s so much questioning and frequently suspicion and cynicism of people making these decisions behind closed doors,” said Commission President John Mack. Mack referenced his years as head of the Los Angeles Urban League in which he dealt with ever-present tension between the LAPD and the black community. “We believe that this provides the transparency that the public needs while at the same time it protects the individual officer from potential retaliation from criminal elements in the community and it protects the privacy of the officer,” Baker said in a statement. Los Angeles police officers are involved in a serious use of force about once every three days. An LAPD unit investigates the incidents, looking at the criminal culpability of the suspects involved and the officers, as well as if department policy was followed. The chief of police makes a recommendation on whether an officer’s action warrants discipline, which then goes to the Police Commission, the civilian panel appointed by the mayor to oversee the LAPD. With advice from its inspector general, who monitors LAPD probes, the Police Commission decides in a closed meeting if an action was in policy or if it should lead to training or discipline. Under state law, the city has one year from an incident to discipline a peace officer. The document the Police Commission plans to release will include information on the incident, as well as how the commission came to its disciplinary decision, officials said.

Villaraigosa made a rare appearance at the commission’s meeting to advocate for the public disclosure. “We’ve given those charged with protecting us extraordinary power, and we must make sure that power is used appropriately,” he said. The plan is the result of negotiations between the Police Commission and the Police Protective League, the union representing rank-and-file officers. League President Bob Baker said he was pleased with the final outcome, which will exclude officer names and other identifying information.
