About the CPRB

The CPRB was established to provide a complaint process into claims of Iowa City police misconduct and assure that investigations are conducted in a manner which is fair, thorough and accurate; and to assist the Police Chief, the City Manager, and the City Council in evaluating the overall performance of the police department by having it review the police department’s investigation into complaints.

In addition, the CPRB reviews police policies, procedures, and practices, and may recommend modifications to them.
