This week, Vancouver City Manager Eric Holmes finalized the appointment of 12 members to the city’s new Community Task Force on Policing, designed to oversee implementation of the recommendations made in the Police Executive Research Forum's (PERF) use of force report on the Vancouver Police Department (VPD).
The report was completed after a yearlong review by PERF on the VPD's policies, training, documentation and data on use of force and officer-involved shootings.
Following the discovery of new evidence by City Attorney Jonathan Young, the City of Vancouver has made the decision to dismiss the pending prosecution case against Kelly Carroll, the owner of the PetBiz.
The Governor’s "Stay Home-Stay Healthy" Order required all "non-essential" businesses to close and specifically identified “pet grooming” as a non-essential, Phase 2 activity. On May 19, while Clark County was still in Phase 1, law enforcement contacted Ms. Carroll, the owner of the PetBiz grooming salon, and observed her transacting business.
