Wichita police, law enforcement to host community discussion event

Posted: Updated:

The Wichita Police Department will host a community-wide event Saturday, November 23, to hear feedback from citizens about law enforcement. 

At the event, "What's Going On and What More We Can Do", police officers and other criminal justice leaders will meet with Wichita citizens to discuss community issues like criminal justice reform and the mental health crisis.

"The more we interact with our community and talk about struggles that we face both within the system and that community members face, I think the better off we are," said Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay.  

The event will include roundtable discussions with criminal justice leaders including The Wichita Police Department, Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office, District Attorney Marc Bennett, and others. 

All are welcome to attend the event Saturday, November 23, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Wichita State University Metropolitan Complex at 5015 East 29th St N. 

Lunch will be provided. There is not a cost; however, the event will be limited so officers encourage citizens to arrive early.
