If the job of the Police Accountability Board’s members is to set the vision for the Board’s work, the job of the Board’s staff is to execute that vision. The law says the Board’s staff are responsible for managing the day-to-day work of the agency. The Board’s staff have to undergo extensive training to understand all parts of policing, public safety, and Rochester’s communities.

The Board is currently looking to hire people with a wide range of backgrounds and talents to join our team. The Board is looking to hire people that reflect the diversity of Rochester and are committed to both our community and our mission. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, the Board strongly encourages people of color, people with disabilities, veterans, women, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, and gender non-conforming persons to apply.
