Citizen Review Board Seeks Resident Input

May 2, 2022

The Cedar Rapids Citizen Review Board (CRB) serves the community by ensuring fair and professional law enforcement that is constitutional, effective, and responsive to the standards, values, and needs of those to be served. The CRB is seeking resident input to help guide their work.

Residents can share feedback on an interactive, public "Idea Wall." Questions on the virtual wall will rotate every two weeks throughout the months of April and May. Community members can leave their thoughts and see comments as they are shared.

The feedback will help the CRB:

  • Understand the community's perspectives regarding the Cedar Rapids Police Department, and
  • Prioritize focus areas for the CRB's long-term plan.
