Office of Police Accountability

The Office of Police Accountability was formally established by the Boise City Council on July 13, 2021. This new model of civilian oversight will bring clearly defined roles for civilian oversight and structure to complaint investigation and auditing to strengthen accountability, increase transparency, and eliminate redundancy. 

The Director of the Office of Police Accountability is responsible for reviewing investigations and retaining independent investigators for critical incidents when needed. The Office of Police Accountability has clear oversight of the chief and command staff of the Boise Police Department to help create robust reporting practices and encourage real-time oversight to promote long-term systematic changes in policing.
