Tiburon police plan citizen advisory panel to increase public feedback
The Tiburon Police Department plans to form a citizen advisory committee to solicit ongoing input about policing, to offer enhanced officer-wellness programs and community education and to expand a local registry with information about members of the local special-needs community.
Chief Ryan Monaghan outlined the department’s initiatives at the March 9 Diversity and Inclusion Task Force meeting in response to its key takeaways from a series of community meetings late last year.
The “Living and Growing Together” series included five forums held from August to October, with sessions targeting Tiburon’s business community, faith-based groups, underrepresented populations and the general public. The forums were a part of what Monaghan called a push to “recalibrate” the department after a series of incidents last summer, before he was hired, involving race and allegations of profiling.
