Police Civilian Review Board

The Police Civilian Review Board was established by Springfield City Council in 1999 to review and comment to the City Council through the City Manager and to the Chief of Police upon citizen appeals of determinations made by the Police Department about specific police conduct matters. Members are then selected by City Council.
