Chief's Advisory Team
The Annapolis Police Department has formed a Chief's Advisory Team.
Annapolis Police Chief Scott Baker announced the formation of a Chief's Advisory Team for the department. The chief sought applications to create a diverse team that represents residents, business owners, youth, faith based communities, and schools.
Chief Baker made establishing a Chief's Advisory Team a priority since his appointment as chief in June of 2017.
“This team will serve an important function as another venue to increase communication between myself, other officers, and representatives from all Annapolis,” said Chief Baker. “The idea is that a small group of people would have a monthly meeting with me to discuss policies, direction of the agency, and crime reduction strategies. It is also an opportunity for them to bring their concerns directly to me.”
The Chief's Advisory Team will act as a sounding board for the chief and Department and a think tank for new ideas or approaches to community concerns. Team members will be expected to honestly and openly share community safety needs and feedback about the department’s delivery of services, assist the department in educating the community about the police department, and attend meetings regularly. Members are also be asked to complete a Citizen Police Academy and participate in ride alongs with officers.
The Chief Advisory Team members were selected from the pool of applicants by Chief Baker. It is important for the members to represent a range of interests and experience and to come from diverse backgrounds. Members were chosen to serve for their professionalism, integrity and commitment to their community. Members should be prepared to engage in productive dialogue and treat each other with dignity and respect.

The application deadline has passed. Membership opportunities will reopen when vacancies occur and after members have served a two year term. The Chief's Advisory Team is not a Citizen Review Board.
