The Committee recommends proposed expenditures to City Council. The Committee consists of three voting members from each of the three existing Policing Districts of the City, for a total of nine voting members, who serve four-year terms of office. There are also ex-officio members representing the various recognized municipal employee bargaining units.

 

As outlined in Section 3.38.050 of the Merced Municipal Code, any vacancy for a voting member on the Citizens' Oversight Committee shall be filled by having the Citizens' Oversight Committee make nominations to the City Council for consideration as a whole.  Both of the new applicants were recruited by current committee members.
