Police Review Board to hold second public hearing

The UC Berkeley Police Review Board will hold its second public hearing Wednesday evening to hear from students, faculty and community members about their experiences during the Nov. 9 Occupy Cal protests.

At the first forum held Monday night, protesters told personal stories about the use of police force on the day of the protest. They also brought up concerns about a lack of communication and clear orders given by the police during the protest events.

In the coming weeks, a subcommittee of the board will also hold a hearing, where students, faculty and community members will be able to present videos and statements about the protests.

The board will use statements from both public forums and the future hearing in its investigation of the protests, which will result in a report delivered to Chancellor Robert Birgeneau.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Booth Auditorium in the UC Berkeley School of Law.
