UC San Diego Workgroup on Police Accountability
UC San Diego is engaging in an ongoing endeavor to reimagine community safety, ensuring that every person feels welcomed, respected and protected from harm. As part of this effort, the campus is in the process of forming a Police Accountability Board Workgroup to assist in the formation of an independent, community-engaged, civilian Police Accountability Board. The workgroup will be comprised of a diverse and inclusive membership representing faculty, staff and students including representatives from the Faculty Senate, Staff Association, Alumni Association, Graduate and Professional Student Association, Associated Students and the Community Resource Centers.
Once established, the workgroup will conduct community outreach to advise the Chancellor through the Vice Chancellor – Resource Management & Planning on the development of a full Police Accountability Board in 2023 that reflects the needs, perspectives and interests of the campus community. The Police Accountability Board will review investigation reports regarding complaints filed against the police department and provide recommendations to the Chancellor and Chief of Police to ensure they are resolved in a fair, thorough, reasonable and expeditious manner.
