Carver County Sheriff's Office Citizen Advisory Council
The Citizen Advisory Council is a collaboration between the Carver County Sheriff's Office and the citizens of Carver County whose purpose is to promote productive law enforcement through involvement of citizens in the decision making process. It also will discuss/recommend procedures, technologies, or community engagement initiatives to foster better community outreach. The council will help define community norms and expectations of the Sheriff’s Office, offer feedback on policy updates or changes and offer feedback on current policies to build a more efficient and effective agency and keep the Sheriff apprised of actions taken by the department that will create community concern or controversy. The Council will assist building a stronger relationship between the Sheriff’s Office and the community it serves.
