McLean Citizens Association to Hold Public Safety Program

The May McLean Citizens Association Public Safety Program on May 9 will focus on the Fairfax County Police Civilian Review Panel. The nine-member Panel’s mission is to enhance police legitimacy and to build and maintain trust between the citizens of Fairfax County, the Board of Supervisors, and the Fairfax County Police Department (FCPD) by reviewing certain FCPD investigations to ensure the accuracy, completeness, thoroughness, objectivity and impartiality of the investigation. It is appointed by, and reports directly to, the Board of Supervisors. The Panel is governed both by the bylaws approved by the Board of Supervisors and a code of ethics adopted by the Panel. Civilian Review Panel Member, Steve Descano, will provide a presentation about the Civilian Review Panel at the May 9 McLean Citizens Association Public Safety Program to further explain his responsibilities and to answer questions. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the McLean Governmental Center Community Rooms, 1437 Balls Hill Road, McLean.
