UC San Diego Police Accountability Board

President Drake has called on every UC campus to establish a Police Accountability Board (PAB), which will review allegations of police misconduct and will also make policy and procedure recommendations. The UC San Diego PAB is part of our efforts to ensure that every member of our community feels welcomed, respected and protected from harm. UC San Diego is in the process of forming and training its board and expects to complete this process in fall 2022.

For questions or more information on how to get involved at UC San Diego, please contact PAB Staff Support, pab@ucsd.edu.

Police Accountability at UC San Diego

The UC San Diego community is in the process of developing an accountability body that reflects the needs and values of our diverse campus community. The establishment of this board is part of the University of California’s Community Safety Plan:

“Each campus, modeling the UC Davis Police Accountability Board’s procedures and policies as minimum standards, will establish an independent, civilian campus police accountability body and procedures to review investigation reports regarding complaints filed against UCPD.” UCOP Community Safety Plan, Section 4.1a

What is a Police Accountability Board?

Many jurisdictions have police accountability boards to provide independent oversight of police departments. These boards:

  • Review investigation of complaints against police department employees
  • Examine policies and procedures, evaluate departmental culture and provide recommendations to police departments and governments
  • Hold regular open meetings to solicit community feedback and share information about their findings and recommendations

Members are trained on the regulatory, legal and procedural requirements necessary to review complaints and make recommendations on police department policies, procedures and practices.

Some San Diego area communities that have formed PABs include:
