Community Police Review Board

Overview

The Community Police Review Board (CPRB) conducts external reviews of complaints against Salem Police Department employees. A person who has completed the internal police investigation process, yet is unsatisfied with the results, may initiate a Community Police Review Board review.

Seven members and two alternates who are Salem residents comprise the board. These individuals have an interest in providing input and insight to ensure professionalism and transparency in policing. The board advises the City Manager and reports its findings to the City Manager, with a concurrent copy to the City Council.

In addition to external reviews, the board may also:

  • Review and advise on police department policy and procedure
  • Review and analyze the police department’s complaint summaries and trends
  • Refer issues to the Chief of Police

Meetings are generally held quarterly, and board hearings are held as CPRB cases are initiated. To file a complaint, please access the Salem Police Department complaint page​.
