[ARCHIVED] Community Invited to 21st Century Policing Meeting on November 28

Next Tuesday, November 28, a special meeting discussing 21st Century Policing will be held at the Eugene Public Library, in the Bascom Tykeson Room, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The meeting will be led by Charles Ramsey and Sean Smoot of 21st Century Policing Solutions LLC, explaining what 21st Century Policing means and how it is integrated into the municipal justice system and with the City’s current Police Chief recruitment process.

In 2014, President Obama appointed a task force to develop recommendations on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust. This report, The Final Report of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, serves as a reference for numerous Eugene efforts, including a systematic review of the municipal justice system and the current recruitment efforts for the next Chief of Police.

“We’re glad to have Mr. Ramsey and Mr. Smoot in Eugene to discuss 21st Century Policing,” said Kristie Hammitt, Assistant City Manager, City of Eugene. “The information they provide will help inform future discussions about our community justice system needs.”

Appointed officials from the City’s Budget Committee, Civilian Review Board, Human Rights Commission, and Police Commission will attend the meeting. Community members interested in learning more about 21st Century Policing are welcome to attend.
