Rockville Seeks Members for Community Policing Advisory Board

Community members are encouraged to apply to serve on the city’s Community Policing Advisory Board.

The board provides recommendations to the Mayor and Council on how to support Rockville City Police Department programs, training, and professional development, and crime and safety initiatives. It also meets with police to discuss issues as they arise, in the interest of making improvements and finding solutions.

The board meets a minimum of eight times a year. It provides input and support for department initiatives, including but not limited to: National Night Out, the annual community police open house, the police ride-along program and fair and impartial police command and community trainings.

There are several vacancies on the board, which is comprised of nine members who live in Rockville. The city seeks diversity in members’ ages, sex, gender, race, nationality, languages spoken and neighborhoods of residence. At least one board seat is reserved for a youth member, age 16-21. Board members serve staggered terms, with four members serving three-year terms and four others serving two-year terms. The youth member serves a one-year term.

To apply, use the expression of interest form at

The Mayor and Council created the board in 2021 and approved the board’s mission “to enhance trust, respect, communication and collaboration between the community and the police department in order to increase knowledge, understanding, awareness and open dialogue, and to minimize systemic and individual biases.”
