Accountable Policing in San Jose

with Shivaun Nurre

Continuing our discussion about policing in San Jose - via Zoom!

What systems are currently in place to provide public oversight of the San Jose Police Department . . . and what changes may be coming?  Is it time to re-imagine what "policing" means in this community?

Zoom in on the Third Thursday of August to hear Shivaun Nurre, San Jose's Independent Police Auditor (IPA). Ms. Nurre is the sixth appointee since the office was established in 1994. Under her direction, the IPA operates as a government agency separate and independent from the San José Police Department. The office responds to community concerns, suggests policy changes, and addresses officer misconduct. Changes to the role of the IPA are proposed in a city-sponsored measure that will be on the November ballot.


Prior to joining the IPA Office in 2006, Ms. Nurre had 10 years of public sector experience as a Deputy County Counsel for Santa Clara County. She obtained an undergraduate degree in history from U.C. Riverside and worked for several years at the Congressional Research Service within the Library of Congress before earning a law degree from U.C. Davis


The Zoom meeting will begin promptly at noon. Questions from attendees are encouraged and can be submitted when you register or during the presentation.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.


All are welcome so please forward this notice to other residents who are interested in this important topic.
