Dr. Dallas Stout Appointed to Police Chief's Advisory Board
Dr. Dallas Stout was recently appointed to the Police Chief’s Advisory Board by Fullerton Police Chief Dan Hughes. The Advisory Board was created in 2014 to provide Chief Hughes with input on various issues that could include crime trends and department policies and procedures and is the first of its type in the city in 25 years. Sitting board members will serve two-year terms but extensions could be granted at the Chief’s discretion.
In making the appointment, Chief Hughes stated “I asked Dr. Stout to join because of his leadership in volunteerism and his experience and commitment of inspiring others to improve their communities.”
When he was originally approached by Chief Hughes about the Board this summer, Dr. Stout was in Canada attending the American Psychological Association’s annual convention. About that contact Dr. Stout said “I consider it an honor to be asked by my Police Chief to serve on his Board and I’m proud to have the opportunity.”
Dr. Stout has lived, worked and volunteered in Fullerton for over 21 years. In fact he managed to complete all three of his pre-doctoral practicum rotations right here in Fullerton non profit agencies. He is on the faculty at California State University Fullerton and the University of the Rockies. Dr. Stout is also co-owner of DoctorS Nonprofit Consulting which he founded with his wife Dr. Debra Stout, in 2004. The Stouts provide a broad array of consultation services to non-profit and grassroots groups, coalitions, and agencies throughout Orange County.
A citizens committee was one of the 59 recommendations of investigator Michael Gennaco, hired to perform the internal investigation into the officer-involved death of homeless man Kelly Thomas as well as an overall review of the department.
