The Auburn Police Department has extended the application deadline for the Auburn Police Advisory Committee to this coming Sunday, Monday, October 5 at 12:00 pm. After receiving feedback from the community, the department has adjusted the application process to be more inclusive.

The Auburn Police Advisory Committee (APAC) is described as “an opportunity [for the community] to act in an advisory role in order to provide recommendations to the Auburn Police Department concerning community policing issues. This group will represent the people of Auburn and will be an active partner with the Auburn Police Department in the development of policies and strategies for the implementation of stronger, effective, and equitable community policing.”

Applications will no longer be disqualified if they do no complete every section of the application.  While a background check will still be completed, a social security number is also no longer required. The application additionally states ” having a criminal record will not be an automatic disqualifier. Offenses that may disqualify an applicant could be, but are not limited to, a violent offense, sex offense, or related to a charge or conviction for domestic violence.”

Applicants who have already submitted their application do not need to resubmit or adjust their application.
