Redwood City Police Chief Hosting “Town Hall” Meetings Throughout Spring/Summer

Redwood City, CA - April 18, 2012 - Redwood City Police Chief JR Gamez will be hosting a series of four Town Hall-style community meetings in the coming months, starting on May 1st, 2012. Each Town Hall meeting will be held in a different area of the City, in order to provide the opportunity for people to participate along with others from their own neighborhoods, and to discuss issues which may be of importance to that specific area.

I’m eager to meet and talk with a lot of Redwood City residents during our Town Hall meetings,” said Chief Gamez, who started the job here in December of last year. “These gatherings are an important way for residents and police to create partnerships, to learn from one another, and to build trusting, cooperative relationships that are the very foundation of a strong, safe community. We can only do this if we talk to each other, and that’s what these Town Hall meetings are all about.”

The meetings offer a way for people to meet the Chief and his command staff, to create connections between the community and the Police Department, exchange information, and engage in small-group discussions around neighborhood issues. From these Town Hall meetings, the Chief and his staff will also gain the community’s perspectives and concerns on law enforcement and related issues for each area.

Each meeting will be facilitated by the collaborative group Redwood City 2020, working with Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center. Community members are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in the Police Chief’s Town Hall meeting for their areas:
