West Valley - Mission College District Police invite the public to an upcoming virtual meeting on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. During this meeting, Chief of Police Chris Rolen will provide an overview of Assembly Bill 481. There will also be an opportunity for the campus community to ask questions and provide input. 


On September 30, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom signed a series of eight (8) policing reform legislation including AB 481 which created Government Code Section 7070, et seq., use of military equipment by California law enforcement agencies. AB 481 seeks to provide transparency, oversight, and an opportunity for meaningful public input on decisions regarding whether and how military equipment is funded, acquired, or used.
