County Attorney Hosts First Community Advisory Board Meeting

Community Advisory Board Meeting 1

County Attorney Allister Adel hosted the first Community Advisory Board Meeting on August 13th. The meeting was held virtually with members logging in via video to participate in the discussion.

Members of the advisory board were provided a presentation on how the office handles critical incidents involving public safety professionals, included officer-involved shootings, and in-custody deaths. Discussion then centered on future meeting topics and what members of the advisory board wanted to learn, as well as how they felt they could be best utilized in their advisory role.

“I feel it is essential that we hear from the communities you represent and that my office share our perspective on issues with you,” stated County Attorney Adel during the meeting. “Having a conversation is the only way that significant and meaningful changes can occur in this office. Thank you for your service to this community and your future service to this advisory board.”
