Police Review Board seeking applicants

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 9, 2018) — We’re looking for help shaping the future of community policing in Anaheim.

The city is seeking applicants to serve on our new Police Review Board, which is set to convene in the spring.

The review board is a new, expanded version of the Public Safety Board, which launched in 2014 as a two-year pilot program for civilian police oversight in Anaheim.

The Police Review Board brings expanded civilian oversight to Anaheim. Responsibilities include:

  • Real-time notification of and access to the locations of officer-involved shootings
  • Private briefings on major incidents, including access to body-worn camera footage
  • Publishing of statistics on officer-involved shootings, uses of force, complaints and outcomes
  • Receiving community complaints and concerns and referring them to Anaheim’s city manager, Anaheim Police or our independent police auditor for review and response

Board members will be selected by lottery, with one representative from each of Anaheim’s six City Council districts and one selected from the city at large.

Members must reside in the district they are representing, other than the at-large member who can live anywhere in Anaheim. They must also pass a background check and adhere to confidentiality in ongoing investigations.

The board will meet monthly with support from the city manager’s office and OIR Group, Anaheim’s independent law enforcement consultant since 2007. Applications will be posted soon.
