Greenville Police Host Second Crime Forum

Greenville Police are inviting residents to a community crime forum Monday night on the campus of East Carolina University.

In January, police hosted a similar discussion. Monday's forum, like the last, will be hosted by Dr. Stephen K. Straus, PhD, co-owner of Developmental Associates. Straus has been hired by the police department to help improve its relationship with the community.

The police department says the forum is part of a larger process that includes input from the community. ECU Students, Greenville citizens, property owners and other community stakeholders are invited. The event Monday is at 6 p.m. in the Mendenhall Student Center Great Rooms at ECU.

    My experience of Greenville police officers in person has been favorable, although I have not encountered them downtown at night. The exception to this is in the category of traffic habits. I have watched squad cars commit violations of speed, failure to signal, failure to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk, running yellow-to-red lights, and failure to stop at stop signs. These insignificant infractions undermine the integrity of the department. I have a great deal of respect for law enforcement and would hate to see things like that get in the way of community relations.
