Attend Information Session May 11; Applications Due May 25 – Commerce City is seeking members to serve on its very first citizen advisory board for public safety. The board’s purpose is to formally involve the public in analyzing the city’s police service delivery, identify opportunities for involvement, and to seek alignment with residents’ expectations of police services.
“One of the best ways we can serve the public is by hearing from them firsthand about what they expect from the police department,” said Commander Harold Chatman. “This new board presents an opportunity to work with the chief of police to analyze and evaluate the community’s expectations for police services and how we can collaborate to improve public safety.”
The application process to join the board opened May 1 and closes May 25 with the first board meeting in June. Potential candidates are screened by the police chief’s office and interviewed by city council before recommendations of appointments are made to city council.Learn more about the Commerce City Citizen Advisory Board for Public Safety at an information session from 6 – 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at the Commerce City Civic Center, 7887 E. 60th Ave. Light refreshments will be provided.
