Citizen Police Oversight Commission

The Citizen Police Oversight Commission was created by Ordinance 04-16 on July 13, 2004 by the City Council of the City of Inglewood to provide a system for civilian oversight of allegations of police misconduct.

The purpose of the Citizen Police Oversight Commission is to provide a means for prompt, impartial, and fair investigation of all citizen complaints brought by individuals against the Inglewood Police Department, and to provide for community participation in setting and reviewing police department polices, practices, and procedures. The Citizen Police Oversight Commission is composed of 11 residents who broadly represent the diversity of the city. Two commissioners are appointed by the Mayor, two are appointed by each Council Member, and one is appointed by the Chief of Police.
