SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco voters have passed Measure D, which would require an investigation any time an SFPD officer shoots someone.

The approval of Measure D now ensures that the San Francisco Office of Citizen Complaints will be required to launch a formal investigation anytime an officer shoots someone, regardless if there's a complaint.

The San Francisco police commission will hold a meeting at 5:30 p.m. to continue discussions on the use of force policy. It's something the department has been heavily criticized over, especially with the recent fatal shootings by SFPD officers.

This comes on the heels of Chief Greg Suhr's resignation, and months after the Mario Woods' killing.

Woods was the eighth person killed by SFPD last year. That prompted many protests and pressure from the community to transform the department and change the culture of police brutality.

Critics are callings on the mayor to work with communities to rebuild trust and to find a new police chief, as well as change the department's policy on the use of force.
