Sheriff Diggs would like to announce the formation of the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office Citizen Advisory Committee. This committee will be a critical component to maintaining an open culture of dialog between the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office and our community.
The purpose and mission of the citizen advisory committee will be to bring any concerns in our community to our attention. We would like to enhance our communication and ask committee members for feedback. The best public programs and ideas usually emerge from the collaborative efforts of the community and law enforcement together.
We are seeking a culturally diverse and varied geographical representation of our community. Each volunteer must genuinely represent our community and be able to meet quarterly or more often as needed.
Sheriff Diggs encourages citizens to be engaged and feels that the implementation of a citizen advisory committee can be vital to maintaining public trust and displaying transparency. While we have always sought communication with our community we are making this a formal process giving the community an open forum for input.
Major Ron Montgomery was the driving force behind this new endeavor and will be spearheading the program. Rev. Penelope Carroll and Local business owner, D’Shawn Wright have agreed to co-chair this committee.
