Applications open for Salisbury Criminal Justice Reform Task Force

SALISBURY, Md. – The City of Salisbury is looking for 15 people to join a new Criminal Justice Reform Task Force.

The task force was announced in early May as part of the Police Department’s Comprehensive Trust Rebuilding Initiative but the applications are now open. The task force will help study and discuss current and past issues at all levels of the criminal justice system as well as provide input and feedback to elected officials and Police Chief Barbara Duncan. Duncan tells 47 ABC that policies should change with time but it’s best to do that with input from a variety of community members.

“Just like in any line of work in particular in policing if you can be a diverse group of individuals you’re getting all of the benefits and perspectives,” says Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan.

Chief Barbara Duncan says they will be selecting participants who represent a diverse community. To participate you must be at least 18 years old and a resident of Wicomico County. Applications will be accepted through June 30th. For more information or to apply visit: Salisbury.md/CJRTF.
