Chief Richard McLaughlin is pleased to announce to Laurel’s residents, workers and business owners the formation of the Laurel Police Department Chief’s Citizen Advisory Committees. There shall be two Chief’s Citizens Advisory Committees (CCAC), one established in each election ward of the City. The CCACs shall serve in an advisory capacity to the Chief of Police and/or designee regarding issues relevant to police-community relations and outreach to the community.
The overall objectives of the CCACs are to identify, evaluate, and respond to the needs of both the community and the Laurel Police Department (LPD), and to establish and maintain effective avenues of communication and create a positive relationship with the citizens of the City of Laurel. Citizen participation and interaction with the police are fundamental to achieving comprehensive law enforcement.
Committee members must live, work, or have a business in the City of Laurel and within the Ward selected to be a representative on the CCAC. Committee Members must complete the volunteer application form and are subject to a basic background check and possible interview with a Command Staff member of the Laurel Police Department.
Interested persons should contact Carreen Koubek, Acting Public Information Officer, at 301-725-5300 ext. 2109 for a Volunteer Laurel application package.
