Meetings coming soon!
On June 5, 2023, the City Council adopted a resolution establishing the Police Accountability and Advisory Committee (PAAC). The City Clerk's office is conducting a recruitment for members of the community to submit applications to serve on the PAAC. If you are interested in serving on the PAAC, you can apply online.
Interviews for the PAAC are tentatively scheduled for October, 2023, and once a Committee has been appointed, a schedule of upcoming meetings will be approved and all agendas will be posted to this page. Staff will propose Police Advisory and Accountability Committee bylaws for City Council adoption at a future date following further community engagement. The bylaws will include specific details regarding responsibilities and meeting frequencies of the Committee.
The Committee will be comprised of seven members appointed by the City Council and may include alternate(s). Committee members must be City of San Rafael residents, who have pledged to be impartial, unbiased, and objective. The membership of the Committee should be inclusive and reflective of community members of diverse backgrounds including but not limited to race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, and various communities of interest. Committee members must be City of San Rafael residents at least 18 years old (except for one designated seat for a youth member between ages of 17-26). Members are not required to have any specialty knowledge or particular skills to be eligible. The City Council will appoint the Chair and Vice-Chair for the initial first-year term of the Committee.
