Columbus Community Safety Advisory Commission
Last month, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther announced his Comprehensive Neighborhood Safety Strategy which was developed with community feedback, insights from law enforcement professionals and data-driven, proven best practices from other cities. Included in his plan is the creation of the Columbus Community Safety Advisory Commission tasked with ensuring that the Columbus Division of Police has the best training, policies and procedures to protect and serve the entire community. The Commission will also recommend a consultant from those who respond to a public request for proposals to support their work.
The City of Columbus is now accepting applications from individuals interested in serving on the Commission. Participation requires a commitment of at least one day per month for one year. All appointments are subject to confirmation by Mayor Ginther.
Qualifications: Commissioners must be City of Columbus residents. Elected officials, candidates for public office, city employees, and registered lobbyists are not eligible to serve on the Commission. Commissioners will serve without compensation.
