The Community Police Advisory Board (C-PAB) is a group of volunteers who live or work in the Van Nuys Area, comprised of the following neighborhoods: Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, Valley Glen, Sherman Village, Valley Village and a small portion of Studio City. CPAB members act as a liaison between the LAPD and the citizens to strengthen the lines of communication. All C-PAB members participate in committees for the betterment of the Van Nuys Area Community.
The C-PAB members advise and inform LAPD’s Van Nuys Area Commanding Officer of the pressing public safety and quality of life concerns on behalf of the Community, an area of 30 square miles with over 325,000 residents . CPAB started in 1993 and is now an integral part of the 22 Areas in the LAPD jurisdiction.
C-PAB works closely with the Mid Valley Community Police Council (www.midvalleypolicecouncil.org), which supports the employees of the Van Nuys Community Police Station by purchasing equipment, paying for specialized training and supporting the LAPD Youth Programs when funding is limited or not available from LAPD headquarters. If you are interested in joining the Van Nuys C-PAB, please e-mail Jean Sinatra at firstname.lastname@example.org. Potential members will undergo a background check and approval of the Captain.
