share this:

A Long Beach Police and youth dialogue will continue today, Wednesday, March 16, 2011 and on Monday, March 21, 2011 at the United Cambodian Community (UCC).

The dialogue is an effort to develop and promote awareness and understanding between Long Beach youth ages 12 to 18 and police officers. Youth are encouraged to attend both nights.

The dialogue provides a unique opportunity for young people and law enforcement officers to engage in productive dialogue about perceptions and expectations of each other while exploring ways to improve police-community relations. A series of dialogues will be offered throughout the city over the next nine months, sponsored by the City of Long Beach, Long Beach GRIP (Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention) Project, California Conference on Equality and Justice, and Long Beach Police.

The Long Beach Police and youth dialogue events are today, Wednesday, March 16, 2011 and Monday, March 21, 2011 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the United Cambodian Community (UCC), 2201 E. Anaheim St., Suite 200.

Space is limited and RSVP’s are required. Free dinner and prizes will be provided both nights. For more information or to RSVP, contact Michelle Friesen at ccejintern@cacej.org or 562.435.8184.

The City of Long Beach is dedicated to providing residents with resources to address quality of life concerns in an effort to create and maintain clean, safe and healthy neighborhoods.
