To provide feedback and information to the Department, the city council should consider the formation of a community advisory group.
The City Council considered and approved formation of a Police Community Advisory Committee at their January 10, 2017 meeting.
The City formed a community task force develop a comprehensive plan to end youth violence. It was appointed by the City Council and includes 23 individuals representing key stakeholders in the community. The task force meets twice per month. Once the plan is developed, the City proposes to create an ongoing advisory committee that provide feedback and support to the Police Department on an ongoing basis, including help with implementation of the plan. Therefore, the committee will be a follow-up step to the planning process and is projected to be formed in February 2017.
