CPAT Background

During the summer and fall of 2020, the Burlington City Council, City Manager and other staff have been working with the community to draft a charter for the Community Police Advisory Team (CPAT).  

On November 17, 2020, Burlington City Council approved the charter for the Community Police Advisory Team (CPAT). CPAT will advise the City of Burlington Police Department by working with the City Manager and the Police Chief.

The City of Burlington and the Burlington Police Department embrace community policing and transparency. We’re looking for informed, engaged Burlington residents willing to help us ensure we are achieving our goals and meeting the needs of our community.
