Southeast Priority Board Sponsors Law & Order Forum

Release Date: Monday, July 31, 2006

Contact: Paula Powers, Southeast Priority Board Coordinator, 333-7379

The public is invited to attend a “Law and Order Forum” organized and sponsored by the Southeast Priority Board and the City’s Division of Citizen Participation. The Forum will be held Thursday August 3, 2006 at the Lohrey Center, located at 2366 Glenarm Avenue. The Forum will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m.

The Southeast Priority Board will ask prepared questions of panelists from the City of Dayton and from Montgomery County. Panelists include representatives from the Police and Sheriff’s departments, the City and County Prosecutor’s offices, and judges from the Municipal and Common Pleas courts. Questions will address such issues as appropriate jail space, tougher laws, stricter sentencing, police staffing levels, more aggressive prosecutions, etc.

City and County Commissioners have been invited as special guests. The outcome sought by the Southeast Priority Board is for the City and County governments to collaborate more closely toward a series of improvements to our community’s system of law and order.

For additional information, contact Southeast Priority Board Coordinator Paula Powers, at 333-7379.
