SCPD kicks off a series of Town Hall meetings this week to get input and outline public safety priorities from the community. The first community forum takes place Monday, October 9th, from 6-7 p.m. at Westlake Elementary at 1000 High Street. Attendees will engage with police staff in group workshop-style discussions regarding concerns in their neighborhood.
The meetings are designed to allow neighborhoods, community stakeholders, and police to discuss problems and to engage in the problem-solving process. Feedback in Town Hall meetings will play an essential role in future citywide public safety strategies.
All five SCPD Town Hall Meetings held throughout the city are open to the public.
