Office of the Independent Police Monitor
In establishing the Office of the Independent Police Monitor, the Council authorized the monitor to review all ongoing internal investigations in real time. The monitor has access to all complaint records, including body-worn camera footage, and may observe all interviews with subject officers, complainants, and witnesses. The monitor can make recommendations for additional investigation as well as disposition and disciplinary recommendations at the conclusion of the investigation. The monitor may make policy and training recommendations based on individual cases or trends in complaint allegations. The monitor is further authorized to conduct analysis of department operations and outcomes to identify and recommend improvements to police policies and practices.
