Mayor Kate Gallego recently appointed criminal defense lawyer Armando Nava to her Review and Implementation Ad Hoc Committee on police reform.
The ad hoc committee will review the following:
“I’m looking forward to lending my experience as a criminal defense attorney to the Mayor’s committee” Nava said when asked about his service. Mr. Nava’s father was a police officer in El Paso, Texas for almost thirty years. “I grew up around law enforcement, so I have always been passionate about ways to make policing safer for both officers and the members of the community they serve.” The committee’s purpose is to review past and current recommendations made to the Phoenix City Council and the Phoenix Police Department that could strengthen police-community relations. The committee will provide monthly reports to the city council and will “sunset in June of 2020 with a final report.
