BRISTOL — The Bristol Police Department has scheduled its second forum on crime and drugs in Bristol. It will be held at 7 p.m. on Sept. 11 at Holley Hall. A third-party facilitator has agreed to manage the discussion.
Chief Kevin Gibbs will start off the forum by answering some questions that came up at the end of the last meeting on July 31 and since then.
“I’ll present a report on what has been happening since the meeting and we will then try to discuss some concrete next steps to address the issues we are all facing so we can build on the progress already showing,” Gibbs said.
He suggested that anyone who has a question for him could ask it at the Sept. 11 meeting, or email Gibbs the question beforehand, which would give him an opportunity to get accurate answers rather than guess or get back to them later. His email address is [email protected].
“It is my hope the forums can continue with a stronger focus on community involvement,” Gibbs said. “I will, of course, remain active with the group as it proceeds.”
