Springfield LWV Holding Forums On Police Accountability

Feb 14, 2018

            The League of Women Voters of Springfield, Massachusetts is holding a series of community forums this month on police oversight.

             Springfield has debated the issue of police accountability for decades. 

           Now, a League committee has done research from around the country on various methods of civilian police oversight and has produced a report for discussion, according to Linda O’Connell, organizer of the forums.

         " What would restore trust. What models the League will present that work around the country might have advantages or disadvantages here," said O'Connell.

        The forums will take place on February, 20th, 22nd and 24th in different parts of the city.
