In 2015, the Fredericksburg Police Department established a Citizens Advisory Panel (CAP) to facilitate two-way communication between the Fredericksburg Police Department and key stakeholders in the community it serves. The goal of the Citizen Advisory Panel is to enhance community relations through:
Creating a climate of trust between the community and the Fredericksburg Police Department by enhancing awareness of the Department’s policies, procedures, programs, and responsibilities
Providing a forum for the Chief of Police to actively listen to concerns regarding police services or social problems and find solutions by working together
