Police Multicultural Advisory Committee (PMAC)
A core component of Joint Community Police Partnership (JCPP), PMAC advises the Richfield Police Department on how to better serve, communicate with, and understand the community. PMAC meets monthly with Police personnel to discuss topics that are important to their communities and to open up two-way communication. The primary role of PMAC members is to highlight community concerns and work strategically and collaboratively with community and RPD to address those concerns. PMAC also co-organizes many community engagement initiatives. Current members come from diverse cultural, professional, educational etc. backgrounds. We ask members to tap into their various skill sets and networks as part of their work in PMAC; engage with neighbors, coworkers, students, clients or anyone else to learn how PMAC can make progress on police-community relations.Interested in joining PMAC?
