A Place for Everyone to Share

Post Date:06/12/2017 12:41 PM

All are invited to come together for a conversation about community safety at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at DSI Comedy Theater, 462 W. Franklin St.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by recent acts of violence nationally and internationally,” said Chapel Hill Police Chief and Executive Director of Community Safety Chris Blue. “These acts remind us how we all need to remain diligent in these uncertain times in our efforts to keep our community safe.”

This event will allow a safe place for everyone to gather and share their thoughts about community safety and how we as a whole can work on #BuildingCommunityResilience. We will discuss ways that community members can respond safely to conflicted situations in ways that reduce tension. More details about the event will be announced soon.

Community safety relies on teamwork between Town staff and community members. By encouraging open communication and collaboration, we work together to ensure that our community is a place for everyone. Chapel Hill values being a community of acceptance and inclusion. When conflicts or harassment occurs, residents should feel empowered to act quickly and to inform authorities.

If you ever see something suspicious or feel uncomfortable about a situation, no matter how big or small the situation seems, do not hesitate to tell a police officer in the area or call 9-1-1.
