City Seeks Applicants for New Police Accountability Commission

Post Date:September 04, 2018 2:41 pm

The City of Davis is conducting a process to develop a new system of civilian oversight for the City of Davis Police Department. As a part of this process, the City Council authorized the formation of a Police Accountability Commission (PAC).

Mayor Pro Tem Partida states “The City of Davis is committed to providing community-based accountability and transparency in policing through this newly formed Police Accountability Commission. We look forward to the creation of a commission made up of a diverse and equitable representation of the Davis community.”

The key role of the PAC is to provide accountability via a variety of interactions with members of the public, the Independent Police Auditor, the Davis Police Department, and others.

Commissioners shall be at least 18 years of age and live in Davis or the Davis Joint Unified School District service area. Members will include people of various ethnicities, racial backgrounds, sexual orientations, economic status, etc.

Commissioners are appointed by the City Council. Two members appointed by council shall have demonstrated previous adverse interactions with the Davis Police Department. No member will have a law enforcement background.
