The Public Safety Citizens’ Advisory Board (PSCAB) is responsible for reviewing the Police Chief's proposed annual budget for the Police Department and making recommendations concerning the budget and expenditures to the Police Chief and City Administrator for consideration. The Board may also provide oversight regarding expenditures that are derived from a dedicated public safety funding source and exclusively allocated for public safety operations, programs and services. The PSCAB makes recommendations regarding policies of the Police Department related to public information and public relations to the Mayor and City Council through the Police Chief and City Administrator.
Meetings of the PSCAB are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
The PSCAB is comprised of six resident members who serve two-year terms. Members must be residents of Blue Springs; best efforts will be made to appoint equal representation from each Council District. In addition to the six members, the PSCAB shall interview and recommend one student entering their senior year of high school to serve a one-year term as a non-voting member. All members are appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. One Councilmember shall serve a one-year term as a non-voting liaison.
Preference will be given to graduates of the Blue Springs Police Department’s Citizen’s Police Academy or those with prior law enforcement experience.
