I recently joined Chief Koval, Alder Phair, and several other Madison Police Department representatives for Club Today Not Tomorrow's Peacemakers program community forum at the Meadowood Community Center. The Peacemakers program, which was launched in February, 2014, is focused on creating and strengthening relationships and cooperation between residents and police officers. The community forum had a great turnout, with Madisonians of all ages engaging in conversations and asking questions of their Madison police officers. I would say that the community forum achieved its goal of fostering open and honest communication between police and residents. Events like these are increasingly important in light of recent events.
