Burbank police commissioners, pushing to strengthen their roles as overseers of the department, are attending a conference sponsored by a nonprofit that trains civilian groups on just that topic.
Three members of the commission will be attending the National Assc. for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement in San Diego in October. The cost for the four-day conference is $1,850 per person, including a $300 membership fee, city document show.
Earlier this year, the city contracted with attorney Robert Corbin to train commissioners on the questions they should ask to ensure police were meeting their goals of transparency and professionalism.
