City Manager's Review Board


The City Manager's Review Board (CMRB) is an innovative approach to comprehensive public safety strategies and ensuring continuous improvement of community-police relations.

The Board has been established to pursue five (5) goals:

  1. Become proactive partners in community problem solving;
  2. Strengthen relationships of respect, cooperation, and trust within and between police and communities;
  3. Impact education, oversight, monitoring, hiring practices, and mutual accountability of Stockton Police Department and the community;
  4. Ensure fair, equitable, and courteous treatment for all; and
  5. Create methods to establish the public’s understanding of police policies and procedures, and recognition of exceptional services in an effort to foster support for the police.



The purpose of the CMRB is to support the City’s efforts to meet the five goals and support the City in its ongoing effort to collaboratively:

  • promote comprehensive public safety strategies;
  • build, enhance, and expand relationships with our diverse local communities; and
  • influence the acquisition and distribution of resources in support of this effort.

The CMRB will deliver information, analysis, advice, and recommendations to the City Manager in order to guide the ongoing, continuous improvement of community-police relations.
