Mission & Purpose


The mission of the CAB is to create a forum of citizens and leaders from within Spokane County citizenry to collaboratively address the immediate and future needs of the Spokane County Sheriff by researching, planning, reviewing assigned cases and disciplinary actions, providing oversight on department policies, and recommending solutions that will integrate and prioritize the best case practices.


Recognizing a close relationship between the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and the community is an essential part of a responsive and responsible Spokane County government. The benefits of such a relationship are immeasurable not only for the Sheriff’s Office, but also the citizens and business community. The CAB will be a means of enhancing police/community relations, communications, transparency, and community confidence.
