Riverside police Chief Larry Gonzalez announced Tuesday that he’s seeking prospective new members to serve on the “Chief’s Advisory Committee,” which provides input on a range of issues concerning citywide law enforcement operations.

The advisory panel has been in place since 2001, when the city was under a consent decree stemming from a shooting involving an officer.

“The CAC is my opportunity to meet with our stakeholders, including youth representatives, on a monthly basis to talk about the tough issues we are all facing together in our city,” Gonzalez said. “It helps us continue to stay engaged in these important and relevant conversations taking place throughout our community.”

Committee members serve a two-year term, and the next term begins in September.

The panel is intended to represent a wide cross-section of community interests, encompassing individuals of all backgrounds, according to the police department.

Members are encouraged to share their views on community policing, strategies for building stronger ties to neighborhoods, interacting with the homeless and anything else that might be of concern.

The committee is limited to 25 residents.
