LAS VEGAS -- The Citizen Review Board is seeking qualified applicants to objectively review citizen complaints and Internal Affairs investigations filed against Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department peace officers and corrections officers.

The 25-member Citizen Review Board is expected to fill at least six vacancies on its board due to upcoming term expirations. The new terms are three years beginning Jan. 1, 2014, through Jan. 2, 2017. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13, 2013.

Membership on the Citizen Review Board is voluntary and unpaid. To be eligible, applicants must be residents of unincorporated Clark County or the city of Las Vegas, cannot have any felony convictions, cannot be an elected official, cannot be a present or former Metro peace officer or corrections officer, or the spouse, sibling or parent of a Metro peace officer. Applicants do not necessarily need to possess any police or investigative skills but must be objective in their work on the board.

Potential members must have a flexible schedule. All members who are selected must complete two mandatory training sessions each year, attend the Citizen Police Academy, conduct a police ride-along, and complete 50 hours of training prior to serving on the board. Applications may be printed from the Citizen’s Review Board website at

The Clark County Commission and the Las Vegas City Council each appoint half the members of the board.
