Town Hall Meeting: Community Feedback on Strategic Plan
February 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Community Police Working Group invites Lancaster city residents to attend a series of town hall meetings slated for February, where the group will present its vision and mission, solicit feedback, and gather community input to shape future goals for the group.
The Community Police Working Group is made up of representatives from the City of Lancaster government, the Lancaster City Police Department, the Lancaster chapter of the NAACP, representatives from community benefit organizations, clergy, and city residents.
Since its formation in the summer of 2018, the group has made strides towards improving trust and cooperation between the Lancaster City Police Department and the public it serves.
In addition to hosting a community meeting in August 2018, the group has addressed issues such as recruitment and hiring, use of force, the civilian complaint form and a body camera policy.
The group has begun working with Intersekt Alliance, a consulting firm out of Philadelphia, to create a strategic plan. The strategic plan will address the organizational structure of the group, finalize a vision and mission, and define the work of the group.
