When Should Vallejo Officers Be Required to Test for Drugs or Alcohol?

Vallejo residents attended a city council meeting this week wearing bright yellow stickers that read "Coked Cops Kill." They opposed efforts by the police union to delete a section of its contract that outlines when an officer could be ordered to receive drug and alcohol testing. Councilors approved the new contract, limiting when officers may be subject to drug and alcohol tests.

Guest: Ericka Cruz Guevarra, producer for The Bay
