Purpose and Background
The Portland Police Bureau is seeking applications for its Bureauwide Advisory Committee. We are looking for community members from diverse backgrounds passionate about public service, equity, and strengthening relationships between community and police. The BAC will serve as an advisory body to PPB and provide input on budget development, bureau-community priorities, equity and inclusion initiatives, bureau projects, and City/Bureau issues du jour.
Committee activities include:
Total number of advisory seats: 12
Number of seats available: 12
To be eligible for the advisory committee, members must live, play, worship, go to school, work or do business in the City of Portland.
We want people from every part of Portland here to share their voice on this committee, especially people who have not been involved before. If you want to serve your community and to help government make better choices, then we want to see your application. The attributes listed below are what will guide our selection process. It is helpful if you are specific in your answers. We do not expect you to be or have everything listed.
Let us know if there are barriers to your participation. The City of Portland is committed to providing meaningful access. To request translation, interpretation, modifications, accommodations, or other auxiliary aids or services, contact 971-275-3841, Relay: 711.
People who join this committee will become what we call “Public Officials,” which means that while you serve you must behave fair and ethically. We will provide training on this once you are accepted. Part of following Public Officials Ethics laws means you must tell the group when you or a relative may financially benefit (or avoid fees) by your recommendations. This is called a “Conflict of Interest.” If you tell us about potential Conflicts of Interest that does not mean you cannot serve, in fact, many committees have potential members with Conflicts of Interest. We appreciate your ethical inclusion of possible Conflicts of Interest on the form included in the application.
Applications are due on Sunday, September 13th, 2020.
Applications will be reviewed beginning September 14th. All candidates will be notified by September 25th.
