Madison Police Citizens Advisory Committee accepting applications
MADISON – The Madison Police Citizens Advisory Committee is currently taking applications from interested citizens to serve on the committee. The MPCAC functions as the community conduit for citizens and the Madison Police Department. The committee, made up of nine appointed members, is selected by each City Council member for their respective district along with seats appointed by the mayor and the chief of police.
Applicants must be Madison residents and qualified electors, pass a criminal background check, and may not be city employees, elected officials or family members of either. Places for seats 2, 4, 6 and the mayor’s appointment will expire soon, with a current vacancy for place 7. Once appointed, the seats will expire in 2025. Application submission deadline will close April 12.
According to a press release from the city, the committee strives to promote dialogue between the police department and the community at large. Monthly meetings cover educational topics on public safety and advocate for positive relationships between local law enforcement and those they serve. They are open to the public.
