Title Date Released
Citizen Review Board Public Hearing Set for Nov. 26 11/21/2012
 

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – The Fayetteville City Council will hold a public hearing for the Police Citizen Review Board Monday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, on the first floor of City Hall, located at 433 Hay Street.

The implementation of the review board is a recommendation of a study conducted by the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE). The establishment of a Police Citizen Review Board will require special legislation for the City of Fayetteville to permit members of the board to have access to the citizen complaint file. Other cities have established Citizen Review Boards once the special legislation was adopted.

A work group, with representatives from the Police Department, the City Attorney’s Office and Management Services Department, was formed to develop a procedure manual and City ordinance for the review board. The work group has met regularly over the last two months in an effort to develop a draft procedural manual for Council consideration and comment. The draft City of Fayetteville Citizen Review Board Rules of Procedure document identifies the board’s composition and scope of work and the process for conducting hearings.

Individuals desiring to speak must sign up by calling before 5 p.m., on or before the scheduled public hearing date, by contacting the City Clerk’s Office at (910) 433-1989 or in person between 6:30 and 7 p.m. in Council Chamber, on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
