Community Advisory Board

Community Advisory Board ~ CAB

The Police Community Advi­sory Board (CAB) was estab­lished in 1991 by the Mayor and City Council, with the goal of establishing a close relation­ship between the Police Department and the community. All of the Board members are chosen as “stakeholders” from the community, includ­ing one High School student, retired citizens, edu­cators, military representatives, busi­ness owners or managers, and several City residents.

Our goal last year was to increase the visibility of CAB throughout our community. This was accomplished in many ways. The first step was to design and distribute a handout so that the community would know who they are, what they do, and how to get in touch with them. Another accomplishment was developing and publishing both on the web and as a handout, a Community Survey. Over 100 responses were collected and gave the Committee insight into what the Citizens of Oak Harbor are looking for from their police department as well as other suggestions. These dedicated members also participated in graffiti removal projects across the city working with our citizen volunteers, reserve officers, military personnel, city staff and many others. National Night Out has provided a platform to interact one on one with many citizens. It provides a great opportunity for outreach to citizens of all ages.
