Abstract:
Chapel Hill’s black community and many social activists say they are being unfairly targeted by the town’s police. Chapel Hill does not have an independent police review board, so only town leaders and the police know why 33 citizen complaints were filed last year. Residents want to change that review process to make it more transparent and hold police accountable to citizens. There has been a climate of fear and suspicion in Chapel Hill between the officers and certain citizens because of past actions by police and the lack of accountability.

Durham’s Civilian Police Review Board has little power to hold police accountable in Durham. The board cannot hear complaints unless police have vetted the complaints first. The board cannot initiate its own investigations. The board has no power to force the department to change its policies. The board and its members can only trust the police leaders will listen. Frustrations by board members and citizens are detailed.
