Greensboro Police, Residents To Discuss Relationship

Feb 24, 2015

Greensboro police will meet with city residents to discuss community relations at a public meeting tonight.

The City of Greensboro is welcoming police and the community to discuss their relationship tonight.

Greensboro Human Relations Executive Director Love Crossling organized of the event.  She says some neighborhoods are satisfied with their interactions with police officers.

“We have other pockets of the community where there is debate about whether or not there is a level of courtesy and respect and adherence to policy and procedure.”

She says she worked hard to create a safe and respectful environment for residents, students, civic and religious leaders to listen and weigh in.

“So I really encourage even those who may have historically been discouraged about coming to the table to be there because we really are welcoming all voices.”

Tonight’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Bennett College's Global Learning Center.
