The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors established a Police Civilian Review Panel, which will serve as another way for residents to submit complaints concerning allegations of abuse of authority or misconduct by a Fairfax County police officer.

"The Civilian Review Panel will consist of nine members appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Panel members will serve three-year terms with a two-term limit. All panel members will be Fairfax County residents and will have some expertise and experience relevant to the panel’s responsibilities. The Board of Supervisors may reach out to businesses, nonprofit groups or other local organizations to nominate potential candidates to serve on the panel."
