WEST PALM BEACH — The Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission is continuing the conversation on policing and criminal justice reform in Palm Beach County. Nine weekly dialogues are set to begin this week concluding in mid-August. Specific dates and times provided upon registration.
Diaglogs for the Glades area will begin Thursday, July 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. and end Aug. 12.
Groups will consist of 10-15 people including members of the public, law enforcement officers, state attorneys, public defenders, and others associated with our criminal justice system. Sessions are open to all members of the public via Zoom. Pre-registration is required and space is limited.
This work began last summer after the death of George Floyd. The Board of County Commissioners and County Administration tasked the Criminal Justice Commission with the job of creating listening sessions. Nine policing forums were held throughout Palm Beach County and these dialogues are the next step in the conversation.
