Community Action and Engagement

Is your local group, neighborhood or business looking for a way to engage with the Renton Police Department? Community Action and Engagement meetings may provide the best opportunity for you to do just that.

What is Community Action and Engagement

Community Action and Engagement opportunities were created in response to community feedback, surveys and polls requesting more opportunities to engage with the Renton Police Department in the form of meetings.

Goal of Community Action Engagement and Meetings

To assist the Renton Police Department in better understanding what matters to you most and ensure we are providing the law enforcement service you expect and deserve. In turn we will educate, inform and review our practice and policies through ongoing engagement opportunities.

Meeting Information

  • Due to current conditions, most if not all of these engagements will be in the form of virtual meetings hosted by our Community Programs team. We can discuss any topic that is most important to your neighborhood, community or business.

  • Meetings will be scheduled for 1 ½ hours maximum.

  • Meetings will be held Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

  • To ensure inclusion and opportunities for participation:

  • A lead should be assigned for the group to coordinate attendance list, gather questions, and disseminate meeting invite.

  • Meetings will be limited to 20 people.

  • Requests for meetings to exceed 20 attendees will have to be approved by the Community Programs Coordinator hosting the event.

  • Submit your meeting application at least 2 weeks in advance to allow for scheduling.

  • Meetings will be recorded and may be subject to public disclosure requirements.

  • A facilitator may be appointed by the Renton Police Department.

If your neighborhood, community or business is interested in hosting one of these discussions with an officer, please contact a Community Programs Coordinator at communityprograms@rentonwa.gov or complete the application.
