1000.2124: SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION; Safety of Employees
Workplace safety is subject to effects bargaining. A ballot measure gave the police review agency authority to post every body worn camera video where force was used on its website. The provision was silent about whether Sheriff’s Office policy requiring the Office to give the impacted individual advance notice and an opportunity to review the video, perform a threat assessment, provide safety detail for the affected member and their family, and provide context for the released video consistent with Sheriff’s Office practice that helps explain policy, practice, and deputy perception, would apply when the police review agency posted video. These protocols are intended to protect the safety of officers. The public disclosure of body worn camera video by the police review agency without following existing Sheriff’s Office protocols impacts workplace safety.
