The Albemarle County Supervisors have established a citizens’ advisory panel to oversee the county police. The three-member panel will be appointed early next year, and will have input on police policies. They will be able to review police car videotapes, but they will not have access to confidential or internal investigation data. This all started in August, when county resident Daley Craig got upset with the police, and demanded the creation of a citizen review board. A few weeks later, County Police Chief John Miller endorsed the idea, and submitted a proposal to the county that it be created. Late in September, County Supervisor David Bowerman endorsed the idea, and it just passed yesterday. The County is actively seeking applicants, so interested parties would do well to contact them soon. WINA has the story.
