Police Accountability Board - Call for Applications

Anne Arundel County sealAnne Arundel County is now inviting individuals to begin the application process to serve on the county’s Police Accountability Board (PAB). This is a multi-step process, and here is what it will look like:

  • Phase I is an interest application, which is available now and includes a series of questions that will be used to identify candidates for further consideration.  
  • Phase II includes a secondary application with specific questions based on Bill 16-22 after it is signed. A subset of candidates who submitted Phase I applications will be invited to complete the Phase II process. 
  • Phase III will include interviews and final recommendations to the County Executive and County Council.
