The Police Community Engagement Board was created to advise the police department and reflect the values and priorities of Webster Groves.
Our aspiration is to create a community where racial equity, diversity and inclusion are lived values with the goal of dismantling historical inequities in policing and building a community that feels safe to everyone.
Mindful that communication is 2-way and that listening and reflecting are critically important, our primary goal is hearing input from community members and understanding their concerns.
The board will facilitate collaboration and outreach between the Board, the city's police department, and the Webster Groves community.
- Obtain community perspective on police policies, programs and practices
- Encourage community engagement in fostering safe communities
- Facilitate police department transparency and accountability
