City Council’s Police Oversight Panel Still Looking For Applicants

posted by on April 29 at 14:24 PM

Now that the city is close to ironing out a contract with the Seattle Police Officers’ Guild, City Council is looking at expanding their police oversight panel—the Office of Professional Accountability Review Board (OPARB)—from three members to either five or seven. But, after receiving nearly 30 applications for seats on the panel, the Council is still on the hunt for qualified applicants.

By ordinance, OPARB is required to have someone with law enforcement experience, a community activist and attorney on the panel. The new deadline for OPARB applications is May 23rd.

I pay taxes and am eligible for Jury Duty. Doesn't that make me qualified?
