Citizens / Police Advisory Committee

The Citizens / Police Advisory Committee (CPAC) consists of 9 voting members: 5 area representatives, 2 at-large seats, a resident of property owned by the Housing Authority, and a Housing Authority representative. The term of office is three years.

The committee serves as a liaison between the police department and the community. The committee mediates problems or conflicts and serves as an advocate for programs, ideas, and methods to improve the relationship between the police and community. The committee is also responsible for disseminating information to the community and to the government officials of Asheville. As an advisory committee to City Council, CPAC’s primary function is to make recommendations to the City Council and act as a source of citizen information.


Regular Scheduled Meetings

The Committee usually meets the first Wednesday of each month. The meeting is held at Public Works and various community locations.
The normal length of the meeting is one to two hours.

Previous meetings were canceled due to COVID-19 precautions. A limited number of Asheville Advisory Boards and meetings are starting to take place electronically. Additional staff are needed to set-up and conduct electronic meetings that are in compliance with open meeting laws and state guidelines for remote meetings.

No CPAC meetings are scheduled at this time. All vacancies have been filled.
