In July 2020, the Mayor Andrew J. Ginther seated the Civilian Review Board Work Group to structure a civilian review board, a recommendation from the Columbus Community Safety Advisory Commission.

The Work Group will study best practices used in other cities and bring back the right civilian review board recommendations for Columbus. 

The group is made up of subject matter experts and key community stakeholders who will help guide important decisions including: how the board will be seated; how it will operate; and what powers will be afforded to the board.
