Mayor Seeking Citizens for Review Board on Police Practices

Mayor Faulconer
The Mayor of the City of San Diego is seeking citizens interested in serving on the Citizens’ Review Board on Police Practices (CRB).

The CRB is responsible for reviewing serious citizen complaints against San Diego police officers, officer-involved shootings, and in-custody deaths.   The CRB’s role is to ensure the investigation and findings are accurate, thorough and objective.  The CRB also reviews the administration of discipline in cases where the officer has been found to have disobeyed proper policy and procedure.  The CRB makes policy and procedure recommendations to the Chief of Police.

To see an informational video regarding the work of the CRB, please visit the CRB website at  and watch the featured video: About CRB.

The 23 members of the CRB reflect the diversity in San Diego including ethnicity, race, geographic, occupation, gender, religion, sexual orientation and expression, socio-economic, people with disabilities and age.
Board members should live in the City of San Diego.  The time commitment for the CRB is extensive - approximately 20 hours per month and includes case review, report writing, regular monthly meetings and continuing education.  Applicants must undergo a background check.

Prospective Members are selected by the Mayor and undergo training in preparation to serve.  Board Members are then appointed by the Mayor from the pool of Prospective Members when vacancies occur.  Board members may serve up to eight, one-year terms and serve at the pleasure of the Mayor.

Informational meetings are scheduled throughout the City to provide information regarding the responsibilities of the board and time commitment and to answer questions.  Dates and time for informational meetings are listed below and can be found on the website.
