About the Public Safety Board

Anaheim's Public Safety Board is a nine-member advisory board to the city manager. The board was started in February 2014 as an advisory board and community forum on public safety issues. The board's role includes review of: 

  • Police and fire budgets
  • Staffing levels
  • Delivery of service
  • Policies and practices
  • Some officer-involved shootings, in-custody deaths and uses of force
  • Some internal affairs cases

What's Next

The Public Safety Board is now on hiatus after completing a two-year pilot program. After community meetings and other discussions with stakeholders this year, we expect to present details about the next phase of the board at the Dec. 5, 2017, City Council meeting.
