Interested community members are encouraged to learn more and apply to be part of a first-of-its-kind program for the City of Bothell Police Department.
The Bothell Police Community Advisory Committee will meet regularly and advise Police Chief Ken Seuberlich. They will share their community perspectives, insights and lived experiences to help Bothell Police partner with and serve our increasingly diverse community.
“Our values of safety, integrity, service and equity are the cornerstones of all that we do as a department,” said Seuberlich. “It is our hope that by creating a community-based, volunteer advisory committee, my office and our department will open a direct line of communication with the community that is both accessible and welcoming.”
The Bothell Police Department has contracted with Chanin Kelly-Rae Consulting to help guide and develop this advisory committee as a long-term program that delivers meaningful, structured and proactive engagement.
In keeping with Kelly-Rae's guiding philosophy; build nothing for them, without them, new committee members will first work to help shape this program. The first "launch meeting" is tentatively scheduled for 6:00 - 8:00 PM (virtual) Wednesday, January 11.
Interested community members should submit applications by 5:00pm/PST on Friday, December 30, 2022.
