Police Advisory Boards/Oversight Committees

Colleagues: Bowie's police department is only 4 years. The implementation is going well. A councilmember has suggested the city should have a police advisory board or some sort of citizen oversight committee. My reaction four years ago was that civilian review boards are generally found in larger cities (100,000 pop. and up) and that we did not, and still do not, have the kinds of problems that typically are catalysts for creating these groups/committees/boards. I am interested in hearing if such entities exist in any Maryland jurisdictions. thanks much

The City of Salisbury does not have a citizen review board and we have no present plans to create one. I have worked in a total of five municipalities in my career and I have never worked with a citizen review board. In city of the size of Bowie, the City Council is the citizen review board.
