About the National City Community and Police Relations Commission
The National City Community and Police Relations Commission serves as an independent, unbiased and impartial Commission that is readily available to the public. It is a Commission for the improvement of police and community relations and the facilitation of disputes whenever possible. It provides a forum for citizens to voice their concerns and comments about police conduct, practices and policies and improves communication between residents and the National City Police Department.
The National City Community and Police Relations Commission is empowered to receive and review complaints regarding National City Police Department personnel for alleged misconduct, and to recommend appropriate changes of Police Department policies and procedures toward the goals of safeguarding the rights of persons and promoting higher standards of competency, efficiency and justice in the provision of community policing services.
We view all allegations of misconduct as important and would appreciate your assistance and cooperation in order to conduct a thorough and impartial review. Once the National City Police Department investigation is complete we will begin our review.
The Commission meets on the third Thursday of the months of February, May, August, and November at 6:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall, 1243 National City Boulevard, unless otherwise designated.
The Commission shall be comprised of eight (8) individuals appointed by the Mayor with the approval of the City Council. Of the eight members, seven (7) shall be voting members, and one (1) shall be non-voting members. Of the seven voting members, five (5) shall be residents of the City of National City. The non-voting members shall be a member of the National City Police Officers’ Association.
The terms of the members shall be for three years, subject to reappointment by the City Council. Upon expiration of term, a member shall serve until re-appointed or replaced.
