Members,

I've inserted below a demand letter from CLEAT to the City of Austin. Everyone should know that it's our attorneys' opinions that the Office of the Police Monitor (OPM) may still exist, but they may neither participate in IA interviews nor have access to protected files of officers. This is specifically for cases that are assigned an IA number after December 29th, 2017. The monitor will continue to participate in interviews and have access to files from cases they were already participating in before the 29th of December.

We will file a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) if the city continues to let the OPM monitor new cases started after December 29th, 2017.

Over the course of 2 years, a police officer turned first-time filmmaker and his wife traveled the United States and brought together experts and current/former law-enforcement officers in an effort to explore the highly secretive, often misunderstood, and socially taboo topic of what the officer experiences in the wake of an officer-involved shooting.

AUSTIN -- In a press conference Tuesday, the Austin Police Association president cited staffing and training as issues that may have led to an officer fatally shooting 17-year-old David Joseph last week.

Flanked by police union advocates, the Austin Police Association President Ken Casaday said there has been a rush to judgment from Chief Art Acevedo about one of their own: senior patrol officer Geoffrey Freeman. Freeman shot and killed Joseph in a Northeast Austin neighborhood last week.

"It was absolutely inappropriate," Casaday said.
