Mayor's Task Force on Re-Imagining Public Safety

The Mayor's Task Force on Re-imagining Public Safety was formed in November 2020 to determine whether the town should have a standing advisory board on public safety and what it should look like. The task force's duration is time limited, with its charge expected to be completed within six months.

In June 2020, the Hillsborough Board of Commissioners passed a resolution denouncing the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and outlining next steps for the Town of Hillsborough and its police department, including forming an advisory board on policing. Discussion among board members and input from the community showed the Hillsborough community wished to examine not just policing but also the idea of public safety.
