The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office held a public meeting this week to respond to a county-appointed task force’s call for an overhaul of the department’s policing, hiring and outreach practices. The task force was convened after a sheriff’s deputy fatally shot Andy Lopez, a 13-year old carrying a toy rifle, in October 2013. That shooting widened an existing chasm between local law enforcement and the Latino community. We discuss the reforms proposed and check in on relationship between police and the Santa Rosa community.
