Take the Community Feedback Survey
The City of Santa Ana wants to find out what the community thinks is the best approach for police oversight and how the City of Santa Ana should go about implementing police oversight. The City of Santa Ana is particularly interested in hearing from the community to find out which model and/or framework of police oversight best meets Santa Ana’s needs, how a police oversight board/commission should be structured, and what powers/authority the police oversight board/commission should have.
