Virtual Community Meeting
Registration link: MountainView.gov/1118REI
From July through October, an Ad-Hoc HRC Subcommittee on Community-Police Relations worked with community engagement facilitators from Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center (PCRC) to gather stories from and foster dialog among community members about their experience interacting with the Mountain View police. Stories were shared during Listening Forums, through an online portal, and in one-on-one interviews.
PCRC analyzed the stories to identify common themes, which will be reported at this November 18 virtual community meeting.
Participants at the report out session will be invited to engage in small group discussions to:
- Reflect on how the experiences shared by storytellers may be similar to or different from their own
- Imagine the perspectives of both the storyteller and the police
- Highlight what went well and what the police could have done differently to improve the experience.Following the November 18 report out session, the HRC Subcommittee will present a report on the community engagement process’s themes to the City Council on December 1. This report will help inform future police policies and programs.
