Welcome to Police Accountability Board

UC Merced Police Accountability Board (PAB)

The UC Merced Police Accountability Board (PAB) develops and promotes accountability, trust, and communication between the campus community and the UC Merced Police Department. The PAB is an independent accountability board composed of students, staff, and faculty from the UC Merced community. Two functions are central to the PAB’s work. First, the PAB independently reviews investigation reports and makes recommendations to the Chancellor and Chief of Police following investigations of complaints from the campus community or general public (also referred to as civilian complaints). Second, both over the course of complaint review and in proactive efforts to evaluate UCMPD culture department‐wide, the PAB reviews UCMPD policies, procedures, practices, and trainings and makes recommendations 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.
