Police Board Applications Being Taken in January

Based on recommendations from our police department organizational assessment, City Council established the Community Co-Production Policing (CCPP) Advisory Board two years ago. 

Apply now for the CCPP Board

Though the term “Community Co-Production Policing” is a mouthful, the root of the philosophy is simple – we want to take Northglenn’s value of community policing to the next level by inviting stakeholders to be more involved in how police services are provided in our city.

The board was formed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and despite the challenges, it began to forge a new path of interaction between the Northglenn Police Department and our community. We feel this board is about to shift into high gear, and dedicated volunteers are needed.

Membership

It’s vital to have voices that represent a cross-section of our community on the board. It needs people willing to share authentic and thoughtful perspectives, yet open to learning the “how and why” behind current policing practices. All police departments have fans and critics; CCPP needs members somewhere in between. We need people willing to listen to thoughts and ideas of others, respect factual data, and then use the different views and information to work with the group on recommendations to serve as a bridge in the community.

Openings

From Jan. 4 to 30, the city will accept applications for four CCPP openings: Ward 4 member, two at-large positions, and a youth member. Council chooses the members, and we are hoping for a large pool of applicants. If you are interested in learning more about public safety, have a few hours a month to dedicate to the board, and want to engage in the constructive growth of our police department, please apply! 

The city has long valued community engagement. The number of boards, commissions, volunteer groups, committees, surveys, meetings and other efforts are a testament to this. Your voice is valued. Your participation is needed and welcome.
