Reggie Parson, a first year student at the University of Maine School of Law, was recently appointed to the City of Portland’s Police Citizens Review Subcommittee. This committee reviews the process of police investigations of citizen complaints to ensure it is thorough, objective, fair, and timely. The committee also reports to the City Manager any recommendations for improving the police investigation process, policies or training, and for enhancing public confidence in the complaint investigation process.
Originally from Chicago, Reggie earned his B.S. in Homeland Security from Marian University and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Prior to attending Maine Law, he was a member of the Oshkosh Board of Zoning Appeals. He was also a constituent affairs intern in the Office of the Governor for the State of Illinois.
“I came to Maine Law because the school places a high value on public interest,” said Reggie. “The opportunities offered here through public interest internships, externships and pro bono work allow me to further explore public interest law and to continue my passion of performing public interest work in various areas.”
