San Jose's new independent police auditor is L.A. County watchdog

Posted By Administration, Thursday, November 5, 2015

Walter Katz, a Los Angeles attorney whose work as a police watchdog has gained him a foothold in the national police accountability movement, is San Jose's new independent police auditor.

Katz, currently the Los Angeles County deputy inspector general overseeing reforms in that county's beleaguered Sheriff's Department, aims to modernize and widen the reach of the police complaint process while engendering the trust of the very officers who will be subject to those grievances.
