Current Events Statement: Allegheny County Independent Police Review Board legislation is slated for a vote on January 26, 2021. The vote may be close, so our voices matter! The Pittsburgh Citizens Police Review Board was created after Johnny Gammage’s death at the hands of Brentwood police in 1995, but many Allegheny County municipalities lack police oversight.
An Allegheny County Independent Police Review Board was proposed after Antwon Rose was killed by East Pittsburgh police in 2018 and again after Romir Talley’s killing in December of 2019 by a Wilkinsburg policeman. Talley’s family worked for eight months just to get the name of the officer who shot him. A county-wide Independent Police Review Board would expedite investigations into these deaths.
