“There will be time during the event for attendees to ask questions or raise any public safety related concerns or issues they have within the City, but most importantly [we want residents] to leave feeling as if they were heard,” Rockville Police told myMCM.
Those present will include Rockville City Police Chief Victor Brito, along with representatives from the Montgomery County Police Department 1st District, Metro Transit Police Department and the City of Rockville, as well as other members of the RCPD.
“We hope the Town Hall will provide [residents] an opportunity to meet the members of the Rockville City Police Department and the other local law enforcement agencies that also serve the City of Rockville,” said police in a statement to myMCM. “Ensuring that our community policing partnership between the Rockville City Police Department and those who live and work in the City of Rockville continues to be strong and that our community feels safe will always be our top priority.”
If you are interested in attending but are unable to do so in person, the meeting will be made available to the public via a livestream on the City of Rockville’s Youtube channel, which can be found at the following link: www.youtube.com/cityofrockville.
The town hall will also be broadcast on County Channel 11, as well as the City of Rockville Facebook page.
