The members of the PCAB are comprised of citizens from their respective council districts and the eight (8) police districts. Each police district will have a PCAB that will consist of seven (7) volunteer community members who will serve a 24-month term vetted through an application process. Membership is open to all residents in the City of New Orleans. The seven-member advisory board will meet quarterly to discuss crime and quality of life issues.
