Chief’s Advisory Committee

Diversity and inclusion serve as major components of the Dublin Police department’s outreach with Dublin’s residents, businesses and visitors. Starting in August 2020, City Council unanimously adopted resolution 41-20 to establish a Chief’s Advisory Committee to have open dialogue between the Dublin Police department and the community about ensuring equity in Dublin policing.

The Chief’s Advisory Committee meets with Chief of Police Justin Páez, as well as Dublin Police Department executive staff, to provide valued advice, perspective, recommendations and feedback on significant community-police relations issues. The Committee may be asked to assist the police department with aligning its mission and goals with community expectations by conducting research, soliciting community feedback about the department, reviewing policies and procedures, and supporting the department’s efforts in community outreach and engagement.

The Chief’s Advisory Committee establishes an opportunity for proactive community engagement and critical dialogue concerning the protection, service and public safety needs for the City of Dublin.

Public Records Request Overview

In order to support faster response and better tracking of requests, the City of Dublin uses JustFOIA to collect, respond to and manage public information requests.

Why JustFOIA?

JustFOIA is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) online application that helps streamline the open records request process for the community and improve efficiencies in getting requested information quickly and accurately.

The application lets community members submit requests for all city records, including police reports. Commonly requested information includes accident reports, copies of resolutions and body-camera video.
