§ 1. Purpose  

Latest version.
  • The new Citizen Complaint Authority (CCA) will replace the Citizen Police Review Panel (CPRP) and the police investigations functions of OMI. The CCA's mission will be to investigate serious interventions by police officers, including but not limited to shots fired, deaths in custody and major uses of force, and to review and resolve all citizen complaints in a fair and efficient manner. It is essential that the CCA uniformly be perceived as fair and impartial, and not a vehicle for any individuals or groups to promote their own agendas. It is also essential that the CCA be encouraged to act independently consistent with its duties.
