Community Advisory Council



The Beverly Police Department Community Advisory Council (CAC) is an all-volunteer committee representative of the City of Beverly. The CAC is intended to foster and facilitate communication and understanding between the Beverly Police Department and the community. It is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the City's neighborhoods. The goal is to identify and prioritize community needs and concerns, as well as recommend measures for addressing them to the Police Department. By developing a partnership between the community and the police, the citizens will become educated on police practices and procedures, and the Police Department becomes better informed about the community. We encourage all persons who live, work or use services in the community to participate in our council meetings. People who are interested in the CAC and would like further information can contact Sgt. Philip McCarthy at pmccarthy@beverlyma.gov.


Our next meeting is September 9th. This meeting place and time will be announced shortly.

  • October 14, 2014

  • We are looking for new members who want to make a difference in our community. We welcome new participants to our group. If you want to help, listen and/or be involved, feel free to drop in to one of our meetings.
