Office of Professional Accountability

The mission of Office of Professional Accountability is to provide for oversight of the complaint process; to promote public awareness of and full access to that process; and to advance reforms that increase police accountability by the Spokane Police Department.

Major Justin Lundgren holds community forums to encourage dialog about the complaint process at the Spokane Police Department and meets with community members to talk about the types of complaints internal affairs investigates as well as our process. Kathy Armstrong, Program Manager, also meets with community members to discuss SPD's reforms, including the Department of Justice COPS Office Collaborative Reform process.

Please contact Major Lundgren at 509.835.4527 or via email if you'd like to schedule a presentation for your group or organization.

Community Police Forums

5 Community Police forums were held during the first six months of 2016 and more will be scheduled in the fall.

On October 4, 2015, Spokane Police Department participated in a Community Police Forum at the Word of Life Church - watch video footage of the event. The event was facilitated by Pastor Shon Davis and included a panel discussion. SPD Captain Craig Meidl, Lieutenant Tracie Meidl, and Corporal Glenn Bartlett represented law enforcement along with community members Angela Jones, Pastor Andre Dove, Pastor Mike Walker, and Jim Andrews. Chief Dobrow, Assistant Chief Smith and Director of Strategic Initiatives Schwering were in attendance with approximately 120 community members. The event allowed open and honest dialogue and promoted transparency and further engagement. Pastor Davis plans on scheduling several more forums in the near future.
