The Task Force’s objective is to help build and strengthen trust between the community and law enforcement by identifying issues, perceptions, and challenges to that trust that exist today. The Task Force will accomplish this objective by creating awareness of these issues and providing a vehicle and forum through which this information will be distributed and shared with law enforcement, local officials, and the community as a whole. With a recent increase in local COVID-19 cases, it is necessary to conduct these conversations online via Zoom Facebook Live. Video recordings will be available on the Unified Government’s Facebook, YouTube Channel, and UGTV (Spectrum channel 2 and Google Fiber channel 141).
