Citizen Advisory Board
The Annapolis Police Department is forming a Citizen Advisory Board. If you are interested in applying to be a member please fill out the application below.
Annapolis Police Chief Scott Baker announces the formation of a 10 member Citizen Advisory Board for the department. The chief is seeking applications to create a diverse board that will represent residents, business owners, youth, faith based communities, and schools.
Chief Baker has made establishing a Citizen Advisory Board a priority since his appointment as chief last June.
“This board 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 Citizen Advisory Board will act as a sounding board for the chief and Department and a think tank for new ideas or approaches to community concerns. Board 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 would also be asked to complete a Citizen Police Academy and participate in ride alongs with officers.
The Citizen Advisory Board members will be 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 will be 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.
For more information contact Corporal Amy Miguez at 410-268-9000 ext. 7261 or email@example.com. Applicants to the Board will be asked to complete the Citizen Police Academy scheduled to begin March 7.
The application deadline is February 21.
