City and Police to Give Public Chance to Chime In

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md. - The city of Salisbury and the Salisbury Police Department are giving the public a chance to offer their opinion on how to make the streets a little bit safer.

Thursday evening, the mayor is holding is monthly roundtable discussion in Salisbury and the topic of conversation this time around will revolve around the police department.  Specifically, to highlight the efforts of the Salisbury Police Department's Community Policing Initiatives.  Following the presentation, the public is encouraged to ask questions and offer suggestions on how Salisbury residents and the police department can strengthen their relationship.

Thomas Webb said he has lived in Salisbury since 1975 and for the most part, feels safe living in his city.  However, he believes neighbors and police officers having a stronger bond between one another would go to great lengths in improving the city's safety.

"There's got to be a working together to improve where we live.  This is our life," said Webb.
But, Devani Amaro, who said she has lived in Salisbury for more than a decade, believes the relationship between the city's police and its residents has a long way to go.

"I feel like more patrolling should happen.  I feel like they should have more conversations with the community and see, you know, they problems that they are having in the areas that they are in," Amaro said.

Whether you believe it is more patrols or officers should knock on doors to introduce themselves, any and all suggestions are welcomed.  If you are interested in attending the mayor's monthly roundtable meeting, you can do so on Thursday evening at 6pm in the Government Office Building in downtown Salisbury.
