City of Pasadena Releases Independent Review of Officer-Involved Shooting of Anthony McClain

PASADENA, Calif.—The Office of Independent Review (OIR) has concluded its review of the officer-involved shooting of Anthony McClain in August 2020.

A complete and unredacted copy of the OIR report is available on the City of Pasadena website. Pasadena Police Chief Eugene Harris also provided a memorandum concurring with most of the 27 recommendations provided in the report. The proposed recommendations have been in place either pre-incident, post-incident, post-initial review, or will be implemented in the near future. Pasadena police personnel have analyzed the recommendations and developed a plan for implementation.

It is anticipated the report will be presented to the Public Safety Committee and/or the full City Council in May when a meeting can be scheduled.

"This process was thorough, professional and transparent by all who participated," said Chief Harris, who was appointed to his position in January 2023. "I wish to thank the OIR group for their attention and partnership."
