CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The Charleston Police Department will take part in a town hall this evening to discuss racial justice.

The Racial Justice Town Hall: Our Lives, Our Police, Our Community will take place on Thursday, July 30 from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm.

The event is hosted by the AND Campaign with participation from the Charleston Police Department and panelists representing Black Lives Matter, the Charleston Area Justice Ministry, and the ACLU, among others.

The department’s Director of Research and Procedural Justice says increasing community engagement is one recommendation from CPD’s recent racial bias audit.
