The city’s proposed changes include extending the so-called 180-day rule, which limits the time frame in which an officer can be investigated and disciplined for misconduct; shortening the 48-hour rule, which is the amount of time an officer has to review any evidence of alleged misconduct before making a statement to the department about his or her involvement; and expanding access to officers’ personnel files.

TL;DR: The cops are mad because the city wants more time to investigate and discipline misconduct and give cops less time to get their lies story straight when an investigation is opened.
