Police announce community forum for those transitioning from incarceration
The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s End Gun Violence: Step Forward initiative is holding a Community Forum next Wednesday.
"The forum is for Savannah residents who have a criminal record, convicted felons who are returning to the community after incarceration and community members who want to have a voice about the violence occurring on our streets," police say.
The event will be Wednesday, June 29 at the Moses Jackson Center, 1410 Richards St. from 4-6 p.m.
Project Manager Dr. Maxine Bryant said, “We are holding this forum to hear from people who are directly impacted by gun violence to discuss possible resolutions. We want to hear from them and get their perspectives about why gun violence is escalating and how the community can help reduce it. This also provides us with an opportunity to assess their needs and begin to identify ways to address their needs.”
