On October 6, 2008 the Office of Police Ombudsman was established to provide independent civilian oversight for Spokane Police Department conduct-related matters. The Police Ombudsman’s duty is to ensure that investigations are timely, thorough and objective.

On May 20, 2013, the Spokane City Council unanimously supported and approved the non-binding resolution #2013-0033, authored by Council members Salvatori and Allen.  This resolution lays out the City Council’s vision of how the Office of Police Ombudsman will operate in the future after the overwhelming support by voters for Proposition 1 passed in February, 2013.
