PAC Release Statement on OIS
Dec 29, 2017
“The Police Advisory Commission would like to extend our condolences to Mr. Plowden’s family and friends. We want the family to know that we [the PAC] will do everything to ensure that the investigation is transparent, objective and thorough,” said Hans Menos, PAC Executive Director. “Whenever there is a loss of life it is tragic. However, the loss of yet another young, black and unarmed man is something that many in the city of Philadelphia and around the country understand to be especially problematic, and for marginalized black and brown communities, especially painful. We want to work towards fully understanding, acknowledging and easing that pain. The PAC is currently receiving regular updates from investigators and intends to continue to monitor the investigation.”

PAC-DOJ Public Forum on Officer-Involved Shootings investigation
Jul 01, 2014
THURSDAY, JULY 10, 2014
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
City Council Chambers
4th Floor, City Hall


On Thursday July 10, 2014, the US Department of Justice COPS (Community Oriented Police Services) Office and the Police Advisory Commission (PAC) will hold a public forum in City Council chambers to discuss the ongoing DOJ review of officer-involved shootings by the Philadelphia Police Department.

The forum is an opportunity for the public to offer commentary and ask questions about police shootings in Philadelphia and the Collaborative Reform Review Process currently underway in our city. DOJ officials and members of the team conducting the review will be present to field questions and describe the work they’ve done over the last year. An initial assessment report, the first in a series, is due in the fall, followed by six-month progress reviews to assess the Police Department’s progress implementing the recommendations.
In addition to the July forum, the Commission will accept comments and questions regarding police shootings throughout the course of the entire 18-month review process. Our goal is to use the review process as a framework for detailed public discussions around the use of deadly force by Philadelphia Police officers.
Please contact our office if you or your organization would like to offer public commentary at the forum.
