HIGH POINT POLICE TO HOLD COMMUNITY FORUM
Police and Community Keeping High Point Safe
HIGH POINT, NC (July 16, 2016) - High Point Police Chief Kenneth Shultz and the High Point Police Department will hold a community forum on Thursday, July 21 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chamber, 211 South Hamilton Street. In light of the media attention in recent weeks surrounding police/community interaction, the forum will serve to explain how High Point does policing in a way that has helped the community avoid many of the issues that other departments face around the country.
"We have a nationally acclaimed police department with a great story to tell that the community needs to hear. The more we tell the story, the easier it will be to understand what sets our men and women in uniform apart," observed City Manager Greg Demko.
“Combine that with a community that has done its part to keep High Point safe and I don’t think there is any doubt that we have something special in High Point,” he said.
Attendees will be asked to submit their questions throughout the night. These questions will be read and answered by the Chief immediately following his presentation.
For more information about the community forum, call the Communications and Public Engagement Department at 336.883.3124 or 336.883.8507.
