THE county’s Citizens’ Law Enforcement Review Board (CLERB) is looking for applicants to fill an opening on its board.

Established in 1990, CLERB investigates citizen complaints against San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies and probation officers.

The current vacancy is in Supervisorial District 4, which includes the cities of Lemon Grove and La Mesa, parts of the City of San Diego, and unincorporated communities including Casa De Oro-Mount Helix, Rancho San Diego and Spring Valley.

The 11 members of CLERB include two from each of the five supervisorial districts. The eleventh is chosen at large from any of the five districts. The County Board of Supervisors appoints CLERB members for three-year terms that are staggered beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30.

CLERB also investigates deaths in connection with the actions of sworn deputies and probation officers. The review board makes advisory findings on complaints and recommends policy and procedure changes to the Sheriff, Chief Probation Officer and the Board of Supervisors.


  • Must be a registered voter in San Diego County.
  • Cannot be a county employee.
  • Cannot be affiliated with the county.
  • Cannot currently hold a position as a sworn law enforcement officer.
  • Serve a three-year term for no more than two consecutive full terms.
  • Should attend one CLERB meeting prior to applying for the vacancy.
  • Must complete a training course within three months of the appointment.

The first review of applications will begin on Monday, June 3. People who submitted a CLERB application within the past 12 months still have their application on file with the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors and will be considered for the opening, so they do not need to reapply.
