The UC Davis Police Accountability Board next week will hold its first quarterly public forum of the new academic year.
The forum is scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22, in Room D at the Student Community Center. The board will provide an update and invite comments from the audience.
University leadership established the board last spring to develop and promote accountability, trust and communication between the broader UC Davis community and the Police Department.
The seven board members and seven alternates comprise students, faculty and staff selected from nominations put forth by seven campus constituency groups: Academic Senate, Academic Federation, UC Davis Health System, Staff Assembly, Graduate Student Association, ASUCD and Student Life. Read more about the membership.
The board — together with independent investigators from the Office of Compliance and Policy — is charged with reviewing and making recommendations to the chief of police regarding charges of officer misconduct.
The other 2014-15 public forums will also be from 7 to 8 p.m. Here are the dates and locations:
- Wednesday, Jan. 28 — UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center Auditorium, 2279 45th St., Sacramento campus
- Wednesday, April 22 — Room D, Student Community Center, Davis campus
