ANAHEIM, Calif. (Oct. 6, 2020) — We’re looking for a District 5 resident to add their voice to the discussion about policing in Anaheim, as we continue our efforts to strengthen ties between Anaheim Police and our community.
Applications are now open for a seat on Anaheim’s Police Review Board. Applications are available online and due by Oct. 16 at 5 p.m.
The Police Review Board is our resident oversight group for the Anaheim Police Department. It was created to increase police transparency, accountability and responsiveness — and to give residents a better understanding of police operations and philosophies.
With the Police Review Board, Anaheim’s model for oversight is one of the most rigorous in Southern California. The board’s 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 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 police consultant, OIR Group, for review and response
Help us shape the future of community policing in Anaheim. Submit your application today.
Applicants must live in City Council District 5. Please note: If you have applied to be on the board earlier this year and live in District 5, you’ll automatically be considered for this seat.
The board member will be chosen by lottery from the list of qualified applicants.
