Buena Park Police Department Chief Corey Sianez is looking for involved community members to apply for the Police Chief’s Advisory Board.
The Chief’s Advisory Board is intended to act as a resource for the Chief in the formation of strategies, development of policing concepts, and increasing public awareness regarding policy issues. It is designed for open discussion regarding trends in law enforcement, uses of force, police pursuits and other significant police issues.
Although the Police Chief’s Advisory Board is expected to be proactive, members will have no decision making authority at any level, and will have no power to investigate, review or otherwise participate in matters involving specific police personnel or specific police-related incidents. The Board is meant to be an expression of the Buena Park community’s viewpoints and will act solely in an advisory role.
Board Members consist of 12-15 diverse, active Buena Park stakeholders and are limited to a two-year term to allow for greater participation of other community members.
Service on the Board is strictly on a voluntary basis. It meets on the first Wednesday of every month at the Buena Park Police Department at 6 p.m. It is expected that each Board Member contribute and provide input on topics the Chief of Police deems appropriate and timely.
Applications may be obtained weekdays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the front counter of the Buena Park Police Department, or download the application online at http://www.bppd.com/docs/Membership_application_form_Web_Final.pdf.
