As stated on the City of Orlando website; 'The mission of the Citizens’ Police Review Board is to be an independent, citizen-run oversight committee of the Orlando Police Department’s Internal Affairs and determine whether or not Internal Affairs has properly investigated cases brought to its attention. Additionally, the Board fulfills its mission by reviewing policies, procedures, rules, regulations and general or special orders pertaining to the use of force and police conduct toward citizens.'
Having attended some of the meetings, we can tell you that citizen attendance is extremely low. It's interesting how some people will trash talk police departments on social media, but when offered an opportunity to attend a review board in Orlando they're nowhere to be found. You don't have to speak. You could simply be an observer, learn about the process and spread the word.
We challenge Orlando citizens to bring legitimate issues before the panel and to also quit stirring the pot when they blindly support unfounded claims of those who falsely accuse Orlando cops.
The board meets 8:00am on the first Wednesday of every month at City Hall 400 S. Orange Ave, Orlando. Be on time ! Speaker request forms will be offered and must be submitted prior to the commencement of the meeting. You'll have 5 minutes to speak to the board.
Be sure to check the scheduling/agenda webpage in advance to confirm the meeting has not been cancelled, which seems to happen often.

Back To School
By M.O.S.T. Administrator
8/13/18 - Today is the first day back to school for many Florida counties, including Orange. We've seen the very useful social media pushes about speeding in school zones, supply drives, etc. All very useful. Now we'd like to offer a blunt reality check:
Those who would prey on our young cherish back to school season.
We ask that parents make sure children:
Be aware of their surroundings.
Do not let strangers 'break space' / get too close.
How to take good descriptions.
Memorize emergency contact phone numbers in case they can't access their phone.
Fact: Many students will be home alone after school. They should be reminded to not open doors for strangers and to keep the home locked up.
They also need to know what to do if someone tries to break in while they are home or if they arrive home to a burglary in progress.
Parents should also research what sexual predators are near their child's bus stop / school route by using the Florida Department of Law Enforcement tool by clicking HERE
