Chief's Advisory Board
The Tustin Police Chief’s Advisory board is made up of community members who are representatives of the Tustin community and voice concerns/ideas to the Chief of Police.
The Chief’s Advisory Board (CAB) consists of business owners, residents, educators, healthcare workers, community members from local community-based social services organizations, and others.
The goal of the CAB is to provide a forum for police-community interaction to address public safety and related issues in order to further enhance the quality of life in our community. It also provides a forum with key stakeholders regarding law enforcement policies within the community and is composed of a diverse cross-section of community activists, business leaders and citizens representing both Tustin and the greater Orange County area.
Serving on CAB is a rewarding experience. Here is a statement from current C.A.B. member Kim Leason:
“I bought my first home in Tustin in 1983. What appealed to me was the City of Tustin had a small town appeal, easy access to freeways, great parks, and a mission towards the future.I felt a need to support this vibrant community by serving as: a Board Member for Tustin Meadows HOA, a chair member of The Tustin Community Foundation, the Community Services Commissioner, a chairman on the Tustin Community Pride committee, a graduate of the Tustin Police Citizen Academy, and a volunteer at the Orange Lutheran High Thrift Shop. In all these interactions, I learned something new about the Tustin community. We are blessed to have a great community with an eye towards the future. Our law enforcement is superior as we’ve built partnerships with other police agencies and developed and supported community policing. I am honored to serve as a CAB member.”
