By April 10, the Mayor and the City Council must appoint the 9 member Selection Panel of Oakland residents who will, in turn, choose 4 of the 7 Police Commissioners and 1 of the 2 Alternate Commissioners. Every Oakland resident is eligible to apply to be a member of this Selection Panel.
Ideally, applicants should be long-term residents of Oakland who have sound judgment, appropriate life experience, independence, courage and good listening skills. Selection Panel members will need to be available to discharge the function of designing the application process for Commissioners, reviewing the applications, interviewing candidates and making their choices between April 11 and the end of August (based on Measure LL requirements).
