Carolina Beach Police Beat: Service To The Island

By STEVE STANTON
Carolina Beach Police Advisory Cmt.

CAROLINA BEACH - The Town of Carolina Beach has numerous outlets for residents to become involved in its’ operation and betterment. 
The Police Advisory Committee is just one of a dozen standing committees and commissions which residents can apply to become a member.  Additionally, there are civic committees such as the Island of Lights as well as others that are always in need of additional members.
The Police Advisory Committee is currently seeking applicants to fill a vacancy in its membership.  The Committee is not involved in the daily operation of the Department but rather serves as a liaison to the community to hear and work on problem areas brought before them. 
Additionally, the Committee sponsors events with the Carolina Beach Elementary School, blood drives with the American Red Cross and conducts the National Night Out event which promotes neighborhood watch programs. 
The Committee meets once monthly, much like the balance of the committees on the Island.
Although all committees may not have openings currently, your application will be retained and as openings occur, you will be contacted. 
Volunteering for a committee does take a degree of dedication but your service will reward you with gratifying moments.
The Carolina Beach Town Committees are listed on its website and the Island Gazette normally lists contacts for civic organizations and committees.  Applications for Town Committees can be picked up and submitted at Town Hall. 
After taking the initial step, many residents have found that getting involved was a worthwhile gesture.
The Police Advisory Committee will be conducting its’ next meeting on Monday, December 2ndt, at 7 PM in the Conference Room, which is located in the rear of Town Hall.  Residents are invited to bring their concerns to the meeting.
