Community Policing Advisory Team

In February of 2017, former Chief of Police Nick Metz implemented a new department initiative for enhancing community relations – the establishment of a Community Policing Advisory Team (CPAT). This group was identified as a departmental goal in the most recent (October 2016) Initiatives for Enhancing Community Relations booklet.

The Community Policing Advisory Team is comprised of members of our diverse community who will advise  on a variety of issues to include, but not limited to:

§ Community policing and engagement strategies, as well as directly assist APD in community outreach.

§ Providing consultant advice to the department during times of crisis directly impacting the police and the community.

§ Provide advice and opinion pertaining to current or proposed policies, procedures and training.

§ Assist in creating mechanisms in improving communication between police and community.

§ Assist in creating mechanisms in how best the community can recognize great work by our employees.

There are currently 16 members of the Community Policing Advisory Team chosen by the Chief of Police from among public and private sector business partners, community groups, faith communities, and private citizens. Current membership includes representatives from Aurora Public Schools, Cherry Creek Schools, AKCRT (Aurora Key Community Response Team), the immigrant and refugee communities, the youth community, the business community, the Asian community, the Hispanic/Latino community, the LGBTQ community, the NAACP, the Christian faith community, the Muslim faith community, the Aurora Human Rights Commission, and the Aurora Chamber of Commerce.
