A series of meetings will take place in Pascagoula from November to December, all in an effort to change the relationship between police officers and citizens.
Matthew Senge, a former police officer, is hosting this series of meetings on civilian oversight, a system in which he proposes the implementation of committees that would observe and hold officers accountable for their actions in the line of duty.
Senge hopes these meetings spark discussions of building trust and transparency between police and citizens. “I think that we’re asking the wrong questions. Why not ask what can the police do for your community? And law enforcement, I did this tonight, law enforcement has this great arm of protect. It looks great, 24 inches, big, and law enforcement has become great protectors, but over here this arm, for partnership, is lackluster.”
These town hall meetings will occur every Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Hancock Bank branch building in Pascagoula through December.
