The Citizen Oversight Board (COB) was created in 2004 and consists of nine community members who are broadly tasked with assessing the effectiveness of the Denver Department of Public Safety’s hiring, training, and disciplinary processes and making recommendations as appropriate. In order to do so, the Board is granted regular access to public safety department leaders as well as confidential records. The Board is also responsible for appointing, by and with the consent of the City Council, the Independent Monitor, who shall serve at the pleasure of the Board.
The Board typically meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month.
