The Citizen Advisory Committee requires a commitment of your time in preparing for and attending meetings. We ask that you seriously consider this time commitment. If appointed, will you be available to attend a training program as well as regular meetings quarterly or as needed, and devote the time necessary to fulfill your duties as a member?
Please note due to the sensitive nature of some of the information concerning tactics and officer safety that may be reviewed by the CAC, individuals will have to successfully complete a criminal background check prior to appointment.
