Amends GS 160A-168 by adding a new subsection, GS 160A-168(c4), providing that to facilitate a citizen review of the police complaint process, when there is an appeal of the results of a complaint investigation, the Fayetteville city manager or the chief of police may release to the Police Citizen Review Board the disposition of disciplinary charges against a police officer and the facts that were relied upon to arrive at that disposition. Members of the board will maintain the information as confidential; it is not a matter of public record. Failure to do so violates the provisions as set forth in (e) and (f) of this section. Each member must execute a confidentiality agreement. For the purposes herein, disposition of disciplinary charges include determination that charges are not sustained, unfounded, exonerated, or classified as an informational file or any other disciplinary disposition category adopted by the Fayetteville Police Department.
