Turner Law School Building, Room 202, at 640 Nelson St. on NCCU’s campus in Durham. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

The event is intended to foster open discussion about ways to establish, maintain and improve relations between communities and police throughout the state. A panel including area university police chiefs and local community law enforcement officers will answer questions from the audience as well as questions submitted by audience members participating by high-definition video conferencing and telepresence.

University campuses from across the state to participate include Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, Winston-Salem State University, University of North Carolina Wilmington and Western Carolina University.

University police chiefs from North Carolina Central University and Winston Salem State University will participate in active dialogue as well as local community police chiefs from Chapel Hill, Winston Salem and Garner Police Departments.

Sponsors for the forum include the N.C. Association of Chiefs of Police, ABC News and the NCCU School of Law Virtual Justice Project.

The date and time for part three of the series has yet to be determined. For additional information or special accommodations, please contact Greg Clinton at gclinton@nccu.edu.
