Town Council and Police Department Forum
Tuesday, June 23, 2020
In response to the national unrest surrounding police related incidents in other areas of the country, the Town of Freeport is scheduling a public forum/discussion to provide opportunities to start a dialogue between the Town Council, Police Department and the Community. The first portion of the forum will be an opportunity to educate officials and the public on current Freeport policing standards. This will include time to hear about current department policies and procedures; recruitment and hiring practices; training methods; equipment and its use; and to discuss how officers interact with citizens and the relationship our officers have with our community.
The second portion of the forum will consist of an opportunity for discussion, comments, and questions between community members and Town and Police Department officials. Because of limits on the number of active participants (limited to 100) due to Zoom teleconference technology, residents who may wish to speak during the forum are encouraged to pre-register using the link found on the Town’s Meeting Calendar on the Town’s website at www.freeportmaine.com. Residents who only wish to watch the forum but not speak will be able to do so on cable channel 3, the Town’s live streaming video service at fctv3.freeportmaine.com, or on the Town’s Facebook page or YouTube channel.
