AB 887 (Cooper): Imposes a barrier to effective misconduct investigations and makes it more difficult to hold officers accountable

Under current law, when providing information about the nature of the investigation, an interrogating officer can offer the level of information necessary for a productive and fair investigation. AB 887 would undermine this process by mandating the disclosure of specific details of the complaint before any questions are asked, including a factual summary of the complaint. Requiring this information prior to questioning is contrary to sound investigative practices, as it could hinder the elicitation of truthful statements.
