About the Police Accountability Board

The PAB is comprised of eleven (11) Prince George’s County residents appointed by the County Executive and County Council. To the extent practicable, members of the PAB reflect the racial, ethnic, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, cultural, and geographic diversity of the County, and possess a range of professional or lived experiences. The PAB:

  • Receives complaints of police misconduct involving the public and refers them to the appropriate law enforcement agency for investigation within 3 days of receipt. However, not all complaints are filed through the PAB, some complaints are filed directly with the involved law enforcement agencies.
  • Reviews the disciplinary outcomes of investigations that were conducted by law enforcement agencies and forwarded to the Administrative Charging Committee for disposition.
  • Identifies trends in the disciplinary process of police officers in the County and makes policy recommendations to improve transparency and police accountability. 
  • Meets at least once quarterly with heads of law enforcement agencies located in the County, and with community members at least twice a year.

About the Administrative Hearing Board

Administrative Hearings are like an appeal. They are held at the request of law enforcement officers who exercise their right to contest findings and disciplinary decisions made by the Administrative Charging Committee or a law enforcement agency.

A separate hearing board is assembled for each officer who contests findings or disciplinary decisions. They cover countywide and local law enforcement agencies in Prince George's County. It is their duty to review the evidence, determine the credibility of the witnesses, resolve any conflicts that may arise during the hearing, and determine the weight of the evidence when rendering a final disposition for the "appeal".

An Administrative Hearing Board is comprised of:

  • An administrative law judge;
  • An officer of equal rank as the officer requesting the hearing; and
  • A civilian, who is not a member of the Administrative Charging Committee or the Police Accountability Board

The Prince George's County Police Accountability Board is responsible for appointing one or more individuals to serve as civilian members of the AHB.
