The Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) consists of active community leaders who volunteer their time and energy to address law enforcement services in Howard County. Meetings are held with police leadership on a monthly basis and provide a forum for citizens to provide input on police services, facilitate a spirit of cooperation between police and community, assist in the development and perpetuation of crime prevention programs and aid in the identification of long-range departmental goals.
The CAC meets the third Wednesday of each month in the Community Room at Police Headquarters (3410 Courthouse Dr. in Ellicott City) at 7:00 p.m. For more information, e-mail email@example.com. In lieu of the April meeting, members attend the departmental awards ceremony.
