Creation of the Office of the Independent Police Auditor

The Office of the Independent Police Auditor (IPA) was established by the San José City Council in 1993 with the enactment of a City ordinance codified in the San José Municipal Code. Thereafter, on November 6, 1996 the voters of San José amended the City Charter to establish the Office of the Independent Police Auditor as a permanent arm of city government.

In the 23 years that the IPA office has existed, there have been five Independent Police Auditors:
  • Teresa Guerrero-Daley (1994 - 2005)
  • Barbara J. Attard (2005 - 2008)
  • Shivaun Nurre, Interim IPA (2009 - 2010)
  • Judge LaDoris H. Cordell (Retired) (2010 - 2015)
  • Shivaun Nurre, Interim IPA (2015)
  • Walter Katz, the current IPA, appointed in November 2015
