Urged on by continued Black Lives Matter protests nationwide, the Mobile City Council plans to review the Mobile Police Department’s policies and procedures at a special meeting next month.
The meeting to discuss police and community relations will take place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 9, in the auditorium on the first floor of Government Plaza.
“For our police department to be successful, there must be trust and a solid relationship with the community,” Council President Levon Manzie said in a news release. “This meeting will provide us the opportunity to get a good overview of where we are and determine opportunities to be better as a department and as a community.”
Members of the public are invited to attend and speak on issues of concern. Specific questions should be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7th in order to provide adequate time to obtain answers.
Based on continued guidance from state and local public health experts, a limited number of people will be allowed entry to the meeting at one time to allow for proper social distancing.
Citizens attending will be able to view the meeting on the atrium monitors and will be called in to address the Council on their item of interest.
