Public Safety Task Force

The Public Safety task force exists to develop and build relationships that promote equity and justice while providing for the safety and protection of life and property. We’re committed to developing relationships both inside and outside of our task force that encourage mutual respect for each other.

We have been working with representatives of the police to address racism, reduce violence, and increase equity in how police resources are used for the protection of our communities.

Task Force Chair: Carol Ballance

Meetings: 4th Thursday of every month, 7:00-8:30 PM, Wesley AME Zion Church
