SAN DIEGO–The City of San Diego’s open data portal now provides the public easy access to information regarding cases brought before the Community Review Board on Police Practices (CRB).
Information collected from case reports written by the board will be included on the portal, which is linked from the board’s website at www.sandiego.gov/communityreviewboard. The portal contains a breakdown of information from each case reviewed by the board from July 1, 2017, to the present.
“The City of San Diego is committed to improving how information is provided to the public,” said Sharmaine Moseley, Executive Director of the Community Review Board on Police Practices. “This portal increases transparency of cases reviewed by the board.”
Information available on the open data portal includes:

The CRB reviews and evaluates complaints brought by members of the public against officers of the San Diego Police Department, and reviews and evaluates the administration of discipline arising from sustained complaints. The board also reviews and evaluates officer-involved shootings, all in custody deaths and all police actions that result in the death of a person.
