The Arlington County Board plans to announce its appointments to the newly created Community Oversight Board (COB).  The 7 voting and 2 non-voting members will later be joined by an Independent Auditor to receive complaints and review the actions of Arlington’s law enforcement personnel.  Over 100 applicants submitted their interest for placement on the Board, and the selections were made after thorough reviews of their qualifications, experience, and goals.  Board members and other stakeholders also conducted virtual interviews with the finalists prior to the ultimate choices.
