Members of the community and the City of Newburgh Police Department, as well as other area offices and departments, joined forces for a forum called Strengthening Police and Community Relations. The purpose of the forum is to help foster dialogue between city police and residents. “This forum was our fifth since Jan. 2015 and was, once again, very positive,” Police Lt. Richard Carrion said. “These forums allow the Police Department to discuss our many community policing initiatives, receive feedback and suggestions from our community and to continue building the partnerships necessary to mutually solve problems and keep our community safe.” The forum was held on the evening of Aug. 18 at Newburgh Free Library, located at 124 Grand St. Discussion topics included a juvenile detention alternatives initiative, group violence and crisis intervention, and national police-community relations. Police Chief Daniel Cameron is seen here during a presentation at the forum.
