The purpose of the Reimagining Public Safety Taskforce is to rapidly reimagine and reconstruct the public safety system in Oakland by developing a recommendation for Council consideration to increase community safety through alternative responses to calls for assistance, and investments in programs that address the root causes of violence and crime (such as health services, housing, jobs, etc), with a goal of a 50% reduction in the OPD General Purpose Fund (GFP) budget allocation.
A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the East Bay hills from Wednesday, October 21 @ 10PM through Friday, October 23 @ 8AM
