Police Accountability Board to hold public meeting

By Dave Jones on April 20, 2015 in University

The Police Accountability Board will hold its quarterly public meeting from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. this Wednesday (April 22) in MU II, Memorial Union.

The independent board holds one public meeting in each quarter of the regular academic year. Each public session starts with board member introductions, and information about the board's purpose and how complaints can be filed. Then the board takes general comments and questions.

The board’s work on specific complaints is confidential. Independent investigators assist the board, which has the task of making recommendations to the police chief regarding charges of officer misconduct.

The university established the board last May as a pilot project to develop and promote accountability, trust and communication between the campus community and the Police Department.

The board comprises representatives from these constituency groups: Academic Senate and Academic Federation, Staff Assembly, Graduate Student Association, ASUCD, Student Life and the UC Davis Health System.
