Charlottesville releases community/police forum report

CharlottesvilleThe Office of Human Rights and Charlottesville Police Department have released the report from the forum held on May 2, 2015 at Carver Recreation Center on community and police relations.

The participants identified three major areas:

  • Better Communication
  • Trust and Understanding
  • Transparency and Accountability that will be the focus of an action plan that will come out of the second community and police forum scheduled for late August or early September. 

Though the Charlottesville Police Department has begun making changes identified in the first forum, we are also collaborating with community leaders to ensure that local residents are reinforcing their obligations to each other. A community-wide roll-out of the action plan will be this fall.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
