The Advisory Committee on Police-Community Relations advises the Chief of Police, the Mayor and City Council on matters to improve police-community relations. As a committee that provides independent means of communication and assistance between the citizens of Peoria and the Peoria Police Department, engaging with residents is one of the top priorities for this volunteer-run group. In the past, the committee held several in-person meetings in different zip codes with a large turnout of residents. Based on that success, the public is invited to participate in a virtual townhall to discuss the relationship between the community and the police.
The purpose of this meeting is to provide an opportunity for residents to provide ideas and feedback to the committee. The meeting will be in ZOOM format, but there will also be a phone number available for those who do not have internet access. The meeting will be recorded and housed on the City of Peoria YouTube channel (cityofpeoriatv).
Townhalls are scheduled for January 7, February 4, and March 4. All meetings will begin at 6:00pm and conclude an hour later. After the first three townhalls, the committee and other stakeholders will convene to evaluate and review the comments.
