The Community Policing Advisory Board will consist of nine members who reside in Rockville.
The board makes recommendations to the Rockville City Police Department and to the Mayor and Council on crime and safety initiatives, officer training and professional development, enhancing community interaction, improving the two-way communication between the community and police department, and working collaboratively with existing local partnerships through community events to enable continued police outreach.
The board discusses issues as they arise. The police department will engage with the board to hear and discuss concerns and ideas, in the interest of finding improvements and solutions.
The board provides input and support for department initiatives, including but not limited to: National Night Out, the annual community police open house, the police ride-along program, and fair and impartial police command and community trainings.
