About the Board


On February 18, 2014, the City of Anaheim announced the creation of a pilot Public Safety Board. The Public Safety board is comprised of 9 Anaheim residents to review fire and police budgets, staffing levels, service delivery mechanisms, police and fire policies and practices, and certain critical incidents, such as officer involved shootings, use of force and in-custody deaths. Board members were selected using a lottery system reflecting the 4 existing neighborhood council areas: West, Central, East, and South with 1 member being selected at large. The first public meeting was held on October 15, 2014.

In addition, the pilot Public Safety Board works in conjunction with an external independent auditor, Mr. Michael Gennaco from the Office of Independent Review Group who provides real time monitoring of critical incidents and reviews administrative investigations. In addition, Mr. Michael Gennaco reviews and reports on certain investigations and cases on a quarterly basis.  The external auditor issues public reports and statistics with recommendations on practices, procedures, training, and equipment to assist public safety in areas that may need improvement (see below to view public reports).

The City Manager appointed 9 members in early August 2014 and manages the initial pilot program, members were selected using a lottery system, representatives were drawn from the 4 neighborhood council areas in Anaheim.
