911 tapes to be released in Calif. police shooting case

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Arguing public interest outweighs privacy concerns, San Jose officials Wednesday ordered release of 911 emergency dispatch recordings and police reports on a May incident in which officers fatally shot a mentally ill man while responding to reports he had attacked a family member.

A committee chaired by Mayor Chuck Reed voted unanimously for release of the actual 911 recordings and police reports in the Daniel Pham case. The reports will be redacted to protect the identity of witnesses; council members rejected a suggestion from police and city attorneys to release only transcripts of the recordings and synopses of the police reports to ease concerns about privacy and clarity.
