SAN JOSE, Calif. --
The San Jose Police Officers Association is submitting a tentative agreement on expanding police oversight to the Mayor and City Council today in response to the city independent police auditor's resignation on Thursday.
POA President Paul Kelly repeatedly called for Aaron Zisser's resignation beginning in June, saying he wouldn't move forward on police reforms or work with the IPA until Zisser was out of office.
SAN JOSE — Citing the intense personal attacks against him, the city’s independent police auditor has resigned, ending a short and tumultuous tenure and raising questions about the future of a vital civic watchdog role.
Aaron Zisser’s departure comes after the police union led a blistering, months-long campaign to oust him, pouncing on a string of missteps that the union insisted showed anti-police bias.
“I am enormously grateful to community leaders and advocates for their consistent and robust support,” Zisser wrote in a news release, citing part of his Thursday resignation letter to the city council. “Unfortunately, the extraordinary personal attacks on my office and my work have become a distraction from the important goals of reform and expanded oversight of the police sought by the public and community groups.”
After months of calls for his resignation and termination, the San Jose Independent Police Auditor resigned from his position Thursday.
In his resignation letter, Aaron Zisser thanked the city of San Jose, said he's proud of the work he had done and that he remains "available and committed to supporting San Jose communities, the steadfast grassroot leaders, City leaders SJPD and the next IPA."
San Jose’s civilian cop monitor has agreed to step down, citing the police union’s “extraordinary personal attacks” on him as a distraction to grassroots reform efforts.
Independent Police Auditor (IPA) Aaron Zisser, a civil rights lawyer hired by a 10-1 City Council vote less than a year ago, tendered his resignation Thursday after a months-long campaign by the San Jose Police Officers’ Association (POA) to remove him from office.
“I am enormously grateful to community leaders and advocates for their consistent and robust support,” Zisser said in his written farewell to the council. “Unfortunately, the extraordinary personal attacks on my office and my work have become a distraction from the important goals of reform and expanded oversight of the police sought by the public and community groups.”
