In August, Fayetteville City Council created a citizen police review committee.
The mission of the Community Police Advisory Board is to provide advice and recommendations to the Council, City Manager and Police Chief to improve the quality of policing.
Applications to serve are being taken through Oct. 20.
The agency is described as a cooperative effort between the community and the police to review and recommend policy changes and enhancements to better meet the needs of the community.
The idea is to support a training curriculum that allows police and the community to share public records to improve the perception of law and order and enhance trust of the police.
