Community / Police Advisory Team

To create opportunities for community members and Klamath Falls Police Department personnel to come together in a collaborative process to strengthen trust and enhance relationships, the Klamath Falls Police Department developed and implemented the "Community/Police Advisory Team (CPAT)." CPAT is a joint problem-solving group of citizens and police personnel and promotes the exchange of ideas and information to build and maintain a communication link between users and providers of police services. The team does not direct actions or policies of the department but serves as a crucial advisory body to Chief Henslee and executive leaders within the department.

The Community/Police Advisory Team meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every other month at 3 p.m. The meetings are open to the public and community members are provided an opportunity to address the team at each meeting. Meeting announcements are posted on the department's Facebook Page.
