From San Leandro police:
SAN LEANDRO — The police department is seeking community members interested in making a difference by joining the Police Chief’s Advisory Board.
This board is made up of community members who represent the many segments of our city. The board was created in 2013 to act as a community resource for the police department and police chief in the formation of public safety strategies, development of community policing concepts and increasing public awareness.
The board is intended to provide a forum for discussions concerning community concerns, and the goal is to have a broad spectrum of viewpoints represented.
The role of board members include (but is not be limited to):
• Act as a sounding board for the police chief regarding community needs and concerns, as well as provide community feedback to proposed police programs and priorities.
Apprise the police chief of the community’s need for police services and feedback on the delivery of services
• Assist in educating the community about the function and role of the police.
• Attend monthly meetings at the police station.
Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. To participate, you must be a San Leandro resident or business owner.

Or call Capt. Ed Tracey at 510-577-3249.
The community plays a key role in public safety and keeping San Leandro safe,” Police Chief Sandra Spagnoli said.
“Bringing police and community members together on a regular basis is critical to our service delivery and mission. I continue my commitment to building positive relationships throughout the community and leveraging those relationships to improve the quality of life and safety in San Leandro,” she said.
