The Community Policing Advisory Committee, which will consist of 13 members, is one of 37 recommendations from the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) last year in relation to complaints from 2018.

The commission found no major infractions, but did identify some areas for improvement.

Applications will be accepted until March 5 at 2 p.m. Those interested can submit on the WPS website.
