About the Citizen's Community Policing Advisory Board
In 2020, the Coralville City Council, in collaboration with the NAACP and citizens, passed an ordinance forming the Citizen’s Community Policing Advisory Board. The Board was formed to work collaboratively with the City of Coralville, the Coralville Police Department, the NAACP, LULAC, and other citizen advocacy groups to promote unbiased policing practices in the City of Coralville. 

The Board’s main duties will be to educate the public about these issues, making recommendations to the Coralville Police Department on training opportunities to advocate for unbiased policing practices, and to review data collected by the Coralville Police Department about contacts with the general public. The Board will meet at least quarterly to perform its duties and will present any recommendations to the Coralville City Council and Coralville Police Department. 

How to Apply
Any current residents of Coralville are eligible and encouraged to apply for any of the openings. The law enforcement, NAACP and LULAC representatives may be filled by persons who live in the area, but outside of Coralville. Diversity, equity, and inclusion will be considered as applications are reviewed.

Applications are available at Coralville City Hall, 1512 7th Street, or download an application. Return applications to Coralville City Hall or by email to tjohnson@coralville.org. The application deadline is 5:00 pm Friday, March 26, 2021, and must either be received at Coralville City Hall or the e-mail address listed above. Mayor John A. Lundell will make his recommendations to the Council in April 2021.
