The Kensington Police Protection and Community Services District is governed by five unpaid board members elected into office by the community to serve staggered four year terms. Board meetings are held twice monthly, on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. (November and December meetings occur only on the second Thursday.) Each December, the Board elects one of its members to serve as Board President and one to serve as Board Vice President for the next calendar year. The President of the Board assigns each of the Board members to serve as Chairpersons for the various committees serving the Board.
