Palm Springs police planning series of community meetings

Palm Springs Police Chief Andy Mills said Thursday his department will be hosting a series of public meetings in the coming weeks.

The meetings will be designed not only to inform the community about “exactly what the crime picture is in your neighborhood,” Mills said, but to work in a coordinated fashion to learn about each neighborhood’s concerns.

“First, we want you to help us construct the mission — help us understand what you envision for your police department and how we police the city,” Mills said during a video released to the department’s Facebook page. “The second is to set the crimefighting priorities. There are so many different types of problems that the police can address with limited resources.”

The meetings will be facilitated, and officers will be on hand to interact with the community and explain data that will be on display.

Details about when and where the meetings will occur will be released in the coming weeks.
