Description

The Public Safety and Community Relations Board (PSCRB) serves as a citizen advisory committee to the Chief of Police and the City Manager, providing different perspectives on police policy and training that improve police community interactions. The Board also educates the community on the avenues available to civilians to make formal and informal complaints, assists the community and the police in clarifying and improving procedures related to complaints, and assures that access to these policies and procedures is open and transparent.  Its purpose is to add a resident perspective to the evaluation of civilian complaints, including the timely, fair and objective review of complaints; to identify perceived deficiencies in police‑community interactions, that when addressed, may result in improved interactions and shared understanding; and to provide fair treatment to and protect the rights of civilians and police officers.

Specific community outreach procedures, tools, and resources the Public Safety and Community Relations Board is responsible for are outlined in Chapter 35, Section 81 of the Bloomington City Code.

The Board consists of seven (7) members appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the City Council. Terms of members shall be three (3) years in duration on a staggered basis.

History:

The Public Safety and Community Relations Board was created by ordinance on July 24, 2017.
