New Police Committee to Meet
The Fairhope Police Department is forming a new Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) designed to identify, evaluate, and respond to the needs of the community. Chief Bill Press has said its part of his plan to bring transparency to the Department; and provide residents with a mechanism to voice their comments/concerns about policing in Fairhope. Press: "Its an excellent tool to prevent issues from festering. It provides the public a direct response from the police, rather than hearsay. Anyone can come before the CAC with issues about anything relating to police business. This might be traffic, illegal vendors, suspected criminal activity, noise, graffiti, or zoning violations, et al." The Public is encouraged to attend the first meeting: Tuesday, September 8th at 6PM (Nix Senior Center).
