Kenya Ervin has been selected as the newest member of the Collegedale Police Department’s Round-Table Advisory Committee.
Ms. Ervin, a resident of the city, is not only a successful single mother working on the final leg of a bachelor’s degree, but she is also a passionate employee of a local charity organization.
Ms. Ervin applied for the civilian position last month, stating that her experiences made her an excellent listener, a good communicator and a decision maker; all qualities that she intended to put to use for the round-table board.
The Collegedale Police Department’s Round-Table Advisory Committee will reach it’s one year
anniversary this month. The board has been described as a “think tank” of individuals with a mission to discuss department and community issues while using an open group-based decision model.
“We’re very excited to have Ms. Ervin take her seat at the round-table” said Chief Jack Sapp.
“Transparency through community involvement and endeavors such as these are more important now than they’ve ever been before. The round-table and its members have the ability to do really great things.”
The committee includes police officer representatives and three civilian positions, which include a city commissioner, a representative from the city’s own Southern Adventist University and a non-affiliated community member.
