Public Safety Committee Reports
Pursuant to Spokane Municipal Code Section 04.32.110 (C), the Ombudsman shall make a monthly report to the Mayor, the Chief of Police, and the Public Safety Committee. The Public Safety Committee meets in Spokane City Hall Conference Room 5A on the third Monday of each month at 1:30 pm.
Critical Incident Response
Pursuant to Spokane Municipal Code Section 04.32.040, the police ombudsman shall be notified immediately and act as an observer to any administrative or civil investigation conducted by or on behalf of the department where an employee of the police department is involved as a principal, victim, witness, or custodial officer, where death or serious bodily injury results, or where deadly force was used regardless of whether any injury or death resulted.
The Ombudsman has no role in the criminal investigation of officer-involved deaths or injury. These investigations are carried out in accordance with the Spokane Police Department’s Critical Incident Protocol.
For more information on specific incidents involving members of the Spokane Police Department, please visit our Critical Incidents page.
In 2013 the Spokane Police Department began using the CompStat model of crime reporting. The CompStat model identifies the most active offenders, their criminal behavior and the location in which crimes are occurring. To view these weekly reports, visit the Spokane Police Department website.
The Accountability Information Management (AIM) report is a monthly document prepared by the Spokane Police Department that details unit performance measures, crime trends and response, personnel management, and fiscal spending.
