Stephen Kraus of GlaxoSmithKline appointed to Durham Civilian Police Review Board

Posted by on Thu, Apr 3, 2014 at 5:10 PM

Stephen Kraus, an IT manager at GlaxoSmithKline, has been appointed to the Civilian Police Review Board by Durham City Manager Tom Bonfield.

Kraus is filling a vacancy; his term expires in 2015.

Nineteen people, a record number, applied to serve on the board. You can read Kraus' application here.

The board has come under public scrutiny in the past six months after a spate of officer-related shootings of civilians. Critics, such as members of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice and the NAACP, say the board does not exercise enough independence and is too limited in its scope of duties to be effective in keeping the police in check.

The board met on March 26 to generate possible changes to its protocol and structure. It meets Monday, April 7, at 5:30 p.m. to vote on those recommendations, which it will then forward to City Council for possible approval.
