University District Council Member Rasheed N.C. Wyatt is calling for the formation of a Citizens Review Board to combat police misconduct. What separates Wyatt’s proposal from the three panels already in existence to monitor police – the Police Oversight Committee, the Police Advisory Board, and the Commission on Citizens Rights and Community Relations – is that the Citizens Review Board will have subpoena power. Wyatt said this board would provide the independence and authority citizens are seeking. He recently invited members of the Syracuse Citizens Review board – which has subpoena power and outside counsel – to speak and share information during the Council’s Legislation Committee.
