Workgroups

The CPC conducts many activities in workgroups which review SPD policies and practices and prepare recommendations for consideration by the full Commission.

Several workgroups active in 2013 have been suspended because they do not have current projects. If new work is identified, these groups will be reconvened and the dates, times, meeting locations and names of workgroup members will be posted here.

There are three active CPC workgroups:

The accountability workgroup

The accountability workgroup reviews SPD's accountability system, including the structure, and policies and practices, of the Office of Professional Accountability which investigates complaints of police misconduct. The workgroup also reviews other SPD policies and practices related to the accountability system. While the CPC issued many of its accountability system recommendations in April 2014, new and follow-up work on SPD's accountability system continues.
