West Valley City • A board that reviews complaints against police will begin issuing quarterly and annual reports on its operations under changes approved Tuesday by the City Council.
In addition, citizens will be able to comment at the beginning of monthly meetings of the West Valley City Professional Standards Review Board (PSRB), the police will no longer have a role in appointing the body's members and all seven members will be civilians. The police department had been appointing one of the members; now, no city employee can serve on the board.
The City Council voted 7-0 to approve the ordinance with the changes. Other provisions mandate annual training by the West Valley City Attorney's Office on all topics suggested by the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement and set the terms of board members at two years, with reappointment allowed.
