District Advisory Committees: The Prototype Experience

Jill DuBois

This paper offers a thorough discussion of the District Advisory Committee meetings in each of the five areas initially selected to receive community policing. These committees were mandated by City Hall and were to be comprised of a representative group of people from the district who could guide the district commander to work on priority problems in the district. A full description of each committee is discussed followed by a recommendation section on the key elements that pointed to the more or less successful committees.
