Program Description

  Police Accountability Board

This NDA provides funding for the Police Accountability Board (PAB) and the Administrative Charging Committee (ACC) in accordance with the Maryland Police Accountability Act of 2021, and pursuant to Montgomery County Bill 49-21. The purpose of the PAB and the ACC is to review police data, and adjudicate on law enforcement officers being investigated or charged for disciplinary infractions. Funding in the NDA would accommodate the projected administrative needs of the anticipated nine PAB members and five ACC members. Administrative and operating costs incurred by those bodies include expenses for annual meetings, staffing support, salary compensation for PAB and ACC members, office supplies, printing, interpreter services, legal advice, and dependent care for board and committee members. The NDA will also accommodate training costs for board and committee members, however until those costs can be finalized by the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission (MPTSC) an estimate consistent with other certifications provided by MPTSC was used. The operations of the Police Accountability Board and the Administrative Charging Committee are independent of all Montgomery County law enforcement agencies and leadership.
