Professor Joe Taylor has been appointed to Davis’ three-person Police Advisory Committee that will review citizen complaint investigations and provide recommendations to the city manager on Police Department policies and training.
“I am honored to participate on the committee, and I look forward to applying more than 40 years of service in the legal profession to serving the city of Davis.” A member of the McGeorge faculty since 1992, Taylor’s resume includes service as the Riverside County Public Defender and stints as a senior prosecutor in Ventura and Sacramento counties.
Davis City Manager Bill Emlen announced Taylor’s appointment on May 4. He joins former UC Davis Police Chief Calvin Handy and state Department of Water Resources Chief Counsel David Sandino on the advisory committee.
