National Role Model
Actively Continuing Education for Practitioners
The Office of the Independent Police Auditor (IPA) continues to be an active member of the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement (NACOLE). NACOLE is a national organization that provides continuing education for practitioners of civilian oversight.

NACOLE’s annual conference is an opportunity for the oversight community nationwide to come together and discuss the most critical issues in police accountability. San José’s IPA presented a successful panel discussion titled, “Building Your Public, Media, and Political Base.”

The IPA moderated the discussion with speakers from the San José community, including former Vice Mayor Pat Dando; Vice President for the San José Mercury News, Bryan Monroe; and IPAAC member Merylee Shelton. The speakers represented the three key disciplines that are vital to the survival of every civilian oversight agency. They shared their perspectives as to how their participation played a critical role in making the City’s Office of the Independent Police Auditor successful and effective without alienating the police or the community.
