Pilot Public Safety Board
On Feb. 18, 2014, the City of Anaheim announced the creation of a pilot Public Safety Board. The Public Safety board is comprised of nine Anaheim residents to review fire and police budgets, staffing levels, service delivery mechanisms, police and fire policies and practices, and certain critical incidents, such as officer involved shootings, use of force and in-custody deaths.
In addition, the pilot Public Safety Board will work in conjunction with an external independent auditor that will provide real time monitoring of critical incidents and review administrative investigations. The external auditor and the pilot Public Safety Board will collaborate to develop recommendations on practices, procedures, training, and equipment to assist public safety in areas that may need improvement.
The City Manager appointed nine members in early August 2014 and manages the initial pilot program, members were selected using a lottery system, representatives were drawn from the four neighborhood council areas in Anaheim. The first Public Safety Board meeting is anticipated for October 2014.
The Public Safety Board application will be available early March 2014.
If you would like the application emailed to you when it is made available, please send your email address to email@example.com.
