I'd urge everyone to read the Reform Comm'ee report, which discusses at length (a) the Complaint Proceures, including the 1987 adoption of (de novo) "civilian review"; and (b) the B.Knable-K.Race report from ~'17-8. For now, (1) I think the (Lloyd) Liaison role still needs better integration into the procedures; and (2) 1 huge issue I've harped upon, p. 2 "The availability of these separate complaint procedures, in addition to the GO, allows a complainant who alleges discriminatory conduct by police to choose among available avenues of complaint, or to utilize multiple avenues." This confusion came up in the Amy Hall (still pending?) case; and I believe cops have a valid objection to especially a CDICR investigation.

Pursuant to G.L. c. 31, § 41, the Chief or the Town shall file a written request and notify the parties that the hearing shall be public unless: i. The accused officer does not file a written request for a public Disciplinary Hearing, and ii. The accused officer or the employer-complainant requests a closed Disciplinary Hearing, the requirements of G.L. c. 31, § 41 are met, and the Board votes for a closed session.
