The Community Police Review Board (CPRB) will host its annual Community Forum to hear views on Iowa City Police Department policies, practices and procedures. The community is invited to submit questions and comments that will be used during the event.

The forum will begin at 5:30 p.m., Monday, May 17, 2021. An electronic Zoom meeting is being held because a meeting in person is impossible or impractical due to concerns for the health and safety of Commission members, staff and the public presented by COVID-19.

Topics will include open discussion regarding the proposed changes to the CPRB and the restructuring of the police department toward community policing. Police Chief Dustin Liston will also attend the forum and be available to meet and talk with participants.

You can participate and comment during the forum by going to the Zoom meeting registration link: Meeting ID: 958 2886 0275
