The purpose of the community meeting and public forum is to bridge the gap between police officers and the community, to bring about a better understanding and build a relationship/partnership between the two, and to allow perspectives to be shared and communicated/understood, during this very sensitive time.

The forum is open to the general public. The audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions and share their personal feelings or ideas as well.
