Tampa Police Seeking Community Advisory Team Members
The Tampa Police Department is putting together a community advisory team.
Officials say the goal is to give Chief Brian Dugan details about how police actions affect the community and what the department can do to build better relationships and trust with the people who live there.
It’s a response to recent protests in Tampa and around the country following the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police in May.
The team will be made up of 10 people who have lived in Tampa for the last five years - and who are in good standing with the community and available to attend one-on-one meetings with Chief Dugan.
Team members will serve for one year.
The deadline to apply is Friday, August 14.
