About the Board
San Diego City Council established the Citizens Advisory Board on Police/Community Relations (CAB) in 1990 and met until the board became inactive in 1999.
In 2016 the Mayor and City Council recognized the need for CAB to reconvene and updated CAB’s powers and duties. Specifically, amendments to the City’s Municipal Code modified CAB’s composition, clarified responsibilities, and specified that CAB is a method of community participation in recommending and reviewing policies, practices, and programs designed to make law enforcement sensitive, effective, and responsive to the needs of the City.
The board began meeting in 2017 and continues to meet monthly to address community concerns. Information on meeting location, dates, and time are found on the Meeting Information tab of this web page.
