At tonight's meeting of the Elk Grove City Council, Elk Grove Police Chief Bryan Noblett said an advisory is ready to launch.

"It is my pleasure to announce to you that we are ready to begin forming the chief's community advisory board," Noblett told the city council. "We are very exited to launch this board."

Offering a brief explanation of the board, Noblett said he is hoping to work collaboratively with interested parties on community policing strategies, police-community relations, and other topical issues. The advisory board is being formed following input from several members of the community seeking better relationships with the department.

In recent months the city has been riled by several racially-motivated hate incidents. During town hall meetings conducted by the city council to discuss the events, complaints about police interactions with residents also surfaced. 

Noblett said after the application period concludes, the applicants will be screened to include a diverse cross-section of people from the community. He did not say what the requirement for inclusion on the advisory council will be other than they want members from across a cross-section of professions and geographic areas of the city.

"I'm anxious to get this started, we will have a description of the board online [at the city's website] by the close of business tomorrow along with an electronic application form," he said.
