The Chief’s Community Advisory Board is a group of community stakeholders who serve as a resource to the Everett Chief of Police in understanding and responding to public safety issues facing the police department and community. The Chief seeks to leverage the knowledge, perspectives, and civic spirit of board members to enhance how Everett Police engages and interacts with the community, and how the department delivers law enforcement and crime prevention services to the community. Conversely, members will become more knowledgeable about law enforcement in their community and assist the Chief in promoting public trust and educating the community at large about the function and role of the Everett Police Department.
The Board is a valuable component of the police department’s community policing strategy while also supporting Mayor Franklin’s Community Engagement and Inclusion Directive and the agency’s core values of professionalism, honor, and integrity.
The Board consists of six to ten individuals who reside, work, attend school or volunteer in the City of Everett who are selected by the Chief of Police based on their direct commitment to, and involvement in the city of Everett and serve 3-year terms. Members are civilians, not law enforcement professionals, with the goal that they can provide important external perspectives and insight about law enforcement and crime prevention issues.
