The survey has been sent to the community members and to many Organizations. The City of San Diego's Commission on Police Practices is seeking your feedback. This short survey is designed to collect information to help identify the unique and important characteristics necessary for the City's first Deputy Executive Director of the Commission on Police Practices.

The purpose of the newly established Commission is to provide an independent investigation of officer-involved shootings, in-custody deaths, and other significant incidents, and to provide an unbiased evaluation of all complaints against the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) and its personnel, in a process that will be transparent and accountable to the community. The Commission will also evaluate and review SDPD policies, practices, training, and protocols and represent the community in making recommendations for changes. The mission of the Commission is to hold law enforcement accountable to the community and to increase community trust in law enforcement, resulting in increased safety for both the community and law enforcement.

Under the supervision of the Executive Director, the Deputy Executive Director serves as the chief community engagement officer and coordinates direction and policy decisions in close collaboration with the Commission. The Deputy Executive Director is expected to be a seasoned executive who is comfortable making decisions and stepping in for the Executive Director when necessary and work with diverse communities in San Diego.

This survey will be open until Friday, May 20, 2022.
