PHOENIX — The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is seeking volunteer consultants to serve on its citizen review board for officer-involved shootings and in-custody deaths.

The agency is looking for 1-3 qualified members to serve on the board on a rotational basis.

Volunteers will be among those to provide their input to Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel on the likelihood of a crime being committed in an incident and the chances of a conviction if criminal charges are filed.

“Increasing transparency and accountability is a priority for this office and the addition of outside members to this process supports my commitment to collaborating with the community,” Adel said in a press release.

Since volunteers will give personal views on the legality of incidents, those with a background in criminal law will be heavily considered.

Those selected will serve as volunteers for up to a year. The time commitment would be about 5-10 hours per month.

Interested individuals can apply on the agency’s website.
