Community Justice Forum to be Held in Wilmington

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. – The City of Wilmington wants to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and members of the community.

This will be the focus of the first Community Justice Forum Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the New Destiny Fellowship Church in Wilmington, Attorney General Beau Biden announced today.

Police use-of-force issues will also be a topic of discussion.

The four-member panel will inclue United States District Court Judge Gregory Sleet, State Protector Kathleen Jennings from the Delaware Department of Justice, Justice of the Peace Court Chief Magistrate Alan Davis and Wilmington Police Chief Bobby Cummings. Panelists will give opening remarks and take questions from the audience. Deputy Attorney General Daniel Logan, who heads the DOJ's Crime Strategies Unit, will serve as moderator.

"Improving communication and strengthening ties between local residents and law enforcement is a critical step in our work to strengthen communities," Biden said. "Strong communities are safe communities, and working together, local residents and law enforcement officials can make neighborhoods safer."

The forum is just the first of a series of planned events to improve communication between criminal justice system officials and members of the public.

New Destiny Fellowship Church is located at 906 E. 16th Street in Wilmington.
