Boulder accepting applications for community panel on police department
PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Boulder Police Department is accepting applications from people who live or work in the city to contribute to a panel that discusses trends in law enforcement, policing strategies and increased public awareness about the department.

The department is looking for five people to join seven other panel members selected in 2017, a city news release said.

The group, known as the Community Dialogue and Engagement Panel, is separate from the community oversight panel set to be created in coming months to support a new model of public supervision of the department.

Members of the Community Dialogue and Engagement panel will be expected to attend Boulder Police Department’s citizen police academy to familiarize with the department operations, and it will meet six times a year on the first Thursday of every other month, 6 p.m. at the department.

The application is available at bouldercolorado.gov/police/community-dialogue-and-engagement-panel. The deadline to apply is Nov. 19.

Panel members will be appointed no later than Dec. 20. The first meeting in 2020 is scheduled for February.
