Police Accountability Board

COUNCIL APPOINTMENTS TO THE POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY BOARD

Public safety and building community trust in law enforcement are top priorities for the Prince George’s County Council.  

Convening a virtual Special Session and following a Committee of the Whole meeting, including public comment, on Monday, August 29, 2022, the Council adopted legislation establishing a public engagement process for the selection of members to serve on the Police Accountability Board, nominated by both the County Executive and County Council.  

Under a legislative package of police reforms enacted in July by the County Council and effective on August 29th, new state requirements for improved policing and the establishment of a Police Accountability Board were implemented.   CB-021-2022 included in the legislative package, required the resolution setting forth the public engagement process for selecting members to the Police Accountability Board.  Council Resolution-090-2022 was adopted by the Council on Monday, August 29, 2022.

Pursuant to CB-021-2022, the Prince George’s County Council must appoint five members to serve on the 11-member Police Accountability Board.  Addressing the longstanding issue of police accountability is a serious matter, and our commitment to achieving meaningful reform will be evident in a measured, deliberate, and transparent process, resulting in the selection of fair-minded, objective appointees.

We strongly encourage interested and engaged County residents to partner with us in this critical effort and apply for membership on the Police Accountability Board.  

 

HOW TO APPLY:

Individuals who wish to apply must meet the qualifications outlined in CB-021-2022.
