Public forums to focus on building trust with police
The Duluth Task Force for Improved Community Police Accountability invites area citizens to attend one of a series of public forums on “Building Trust Between the Community and the Police.” At the forum, people will be able to share their perspectives on how to build trust between the community and police.
Those attending the forum will also be able to meet Eileen Luna-Firebaugh, a professor at the University of Arizona and consultant on issues related to community –police relations and civilian oversight. Ms. Luna-Firebaugh is currently in the process of developing a report with recommendations for improving trust between the Duluth Police Department and all aspects of the Duluth community. As well, participants learn about the work of the Duluth Task Force for the Improved Community Police Accountability.
