Police and citizens

Citizens Review Board

The Citizens Review Board was formed to enhance trust between the Tampa Police Department and the community it serves by creating an unbiased panel of citizens to review completed disciplinary cases and issues of importance or interest to the community and the Police Department. The Review Board will report its findings to the Chief of Police and, when appropriate, may make recommendations for possible policy changes. The Review Board consists of eleven (11) volunteer members, including nine (9) voting members and two (2) alternates, serving staggered four-year terms.
