The UC Davis Police Accountability Board (PAB) was established in 2014 to develop and promote accountability, trust, and communication between the campus community and the UC Davis Police Department. The PAB is an independent board composed of students, staff, and faculty from the UC Davis and UC Davis Health community. Two functions are central to the PAB’s work. First, the PAB independently reviews investigation reports and makes recommendations to the Chief of Police following investigations of complaints from the campus community or general public (also referred to as civilian complaints). Second, the PAB makes recommendations regarding UCDPD policies, procedures, practices and trainings when the PAB identifies possible improvements or blind spots. The PAB also solicits public input during open meetings. The PAB is committed to a fair and unbiased approach throughout its work.

The PAB receives administrative support from the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Office of Compliance and Policy
