Citizens' Law Enforcement Review Board


San Diego County voters established the Citizens' Law Enforcement Review Board (CLERB) in 1990 to independently and impartially investigate citizen complaints against San Diego County Sheriff's deputies and probation officers. The Review Board is composed of eleven volunteers from the County's five Supervisory Districts. Members are not affiliated with the Sheriff's Department, Probation Department, or the County of San Diego. Review Board members are nominated by the County's Chief Administrative Officer and appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The Review Board currently is supported by three County employees: an executive officer, an investigator, and an administrative assistant. 

Our Mission

To increase public confidence in and accountability of peace officers employed by the Sheriff’s Department or the Probation Department by conducting independent, thorough, timely, and impartial reviews of Complaints of misconduct and deaths and other specified incidents arising out of or in connection with actions of peace officers.


CLERB meetings are scheduled on the Second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
