The district attorney’s office released its report on the officer shooting of Anthony McClain on Wednesday and said it would not prosecute the officer who shot and killed McClain, but as the case does not appear on the pre-published agenda of the oversight committee, it cannot be discussed. by the committee during the meeting.

The meeting will be the first for new commissioner Dr. Paula Verrette, the District 6 nominee approved to serve on the committee Monday by city council. Verrette is a pediatric specialist in Pasadena.

The commission’s program is expected to focus on five community programs focused on police youth: the Police Athletic League, Summer Leadership Academy, Public Safety Academy, Kids Safety and Explorers programs.
