The City Council Public Safety and Education Committee released an 11-step plan Friday to strengthen public trust in the Seattle Police Department.
The measures include enhanced hiring standards and training of officers, monthly reports of sustained misconduct findings, drug-testing for officers involved in the use of deadly force and expedited review of possible criminal charges against officers.
Councilmember Tim Burgess, chairman of the committee, said the measures are meant to "stop the erosion of public confidence."
