The establishment of the City of Aurora’s Civilian Review Board (CRB) is a result of the City’s CHANGE Reform Initiative, launched by Mayor Richard C. Irvin on June 9, 2020, following the local, national and global civil unrest and calls for systemic police reform and unprecedented racial reckoning.
After months of dialoguing with the community during 15 community listening and recommendation sessions, conducting in-depth research of like boards in cities throughout the country, and comprehensive planning by an ad hoc committee of internal and external members:
On Tuesday, October 13, 2020, the Aurora City Council approved Resolution 20-0232: A Resolution Directing the Preparation of an Ordinance Establishing a Civilian Review Board to Review Matters Involving the Police Department
On Tuesday, November 24, 2020, the Aurora City Council approved Ordinance 20-0710: An Ordinance Creating a Civilian Review Board to Review Matters Involving the Police Department.
