Police seek reforms in meeting with churches and community

Police and church groups started an effort last week in DeKalb County "to restore peace to our communities."

The Georgia Chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) met with the community to begin developing a plan to reform day-to-day duties and make a difference.

The first meeting was held Thursday and officiated by DeKalb Solicitor Sherry Boston, who was joined by prominent religious leaders and law enforcement leaders from across the community.

The event took place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Berean Christian Church, 2201 Young Road, Stone Mountain.

Correction (Aug. 16, 2016): This event took place Aug. 11. The article has been updated to reflect that the meeting wsa last week.
