5 meetings scheduled to improve police-community relations in Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids leaders are launching a series of meetings to gauge how well the city's police are doing with community relations.

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The Grand Rapids Police Department continues to invite the community to share their thoughts on strengthening relations.

They're holding two meetings on Monday, June 12. The first takes place at Michigan First Credit Union on Breton Road SE at noon. The second at Stocking School on 7th Street starting at 6 p.m.

According to the department, these sessions are aimed to: provide greater transparency to questions posed by residents -- especially related to community and police relations; provide updates on actions taken, current work and future plans; engage residents in responding to the update provided to determine if the city is moving in the right direction and what may still be missing from existing and pending plans.

There are three more meetings scheduled for June. They will be held:

  • 6 p.m. June 16 at Cesar E. Chavez Elementary School on Grandville Avenue SE (bilingual session)
  • 6 p.m. June 19 at Gerald R. Ford School on Madison Avenue SE
