Metro Board seeks individuals to serve on new Metro Transit Police Investigations Review Panel
Following action last month to create a new public advisory body for the Metro Transit Police Department, the Metro Board of Directors is seeking members of the public to serve on the panel.
The new Metro Transit Police Investigations Review Panel (IRP) is an independent advisory body that can recommend changes to MTPD training and policies. The panel is one of the first actions taken as part of the Board's authority-wide review of equity matters.
The seven-member panel will consist of four members of the general public – one from each Maryland, Virginia, the District, and an at-large member – plus three members with law-enforcement experience from outside agencies.
Any member of the community with an interest in serving is welcome to apply. Applications will be accepted through 5 p.m. July 31, on Metro's website at wmata.com/mtpd-irp. Applications are available in accessible formats upon request.
The Board expects to nominate the IRP's first seven members in September. The panel's first meeting is expected this fall.
