This is a new board to oversee ongoing reform efforts in the Denver Sheriff’s Department and represents, the department said in a press release, “the agency’s commitment to transparency and community engagement.”

Here’s how the department describes the board’s work:

“The newly established advisory board will create a formal mechanism for the community to collaborate with the DSD about its service delivery to inmates, their families, and community and service partners. The board will be made up of representatives from Denver’s diverse communities and geographic areas and include technical experts in fields such as law, business, and the not-for-profit and mental health sectors.”

Members will have staggered two-year terms and meet “regularly.”

The application and an associated questionnaire can be found here. The deadline to apply is Feb. 10.
