Problem Statement

An opportunity exists as part of the UC Community Safety Plan to develop a civilian campus police accountability board that reviews independent investigation reports regarding complaints filed against sworn UCPD officers.


  • Create essential mechanism for community to report misconduct and ensure that officers are acting consistently with rules, policies and the law

  • Ensure that complaints regarding the conduct of sworn UCPD officers are resolved in a fair, thorough, reasonable and expeditious manner
  • PAB is independent of the campus police department, in that its members are not current or former UCPD employees

Success Metrics

  • PAB members are trained in the legal, statutory, policy and confidentiality requirements of these investigations
