Town Hall Meeting
Members of the clergy, civic and community groups attended HPD’s Police and Clergy Alliance Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, January 26 at Lakewood Church. During the meeting, Chief McClelland outlined his goals and organizational changes for the Department. He then encouraged those in attendance to ask questions and voice their public safety concerns, so that he and his Command Staff members could respond. They also answered questions submitted by those following the event live on Twitter and Facebook. After the question and answer period, break-out sessions allowed attendees to meet with their neighborhood patrol captains and members of other HPD divisions including Internal Affairs, Homicide and Juvenile. Information booths and HPD equipment displays to educate and inform the public about department programs and initiatives were also available.
