The newly created Police Advisory and Review Commission got its feet wet at its first meeting on Tuesday.
The newly crafted committee is eyed to serve as a liaison between the Police Department and the community. It is the most recent iteration of a public safety focused citizens group after a previous one fell to the wayside.
The adoption was prompted by the announced retirement of Police Director Michael Cozzaglio, who has been in his post for 15 years. However, the changes have been discussed off and on after the past administration abandoned attempts to fill the commissioner of public safety post six years ago.
