The City of San Marcos is joining a panel of Hispanic leaders to hold a Community Relationship Town Hall Meeting to discuss community policing, diversity and race relations.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, Nov. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Cuauhtémoc Hall at 1100 Patton St.
“Trust and open dialogue is an essential element in the relationship between the police department and the community,” said Police Chief Chase Stapp.
“We hope these conversations will build upon our current foundation of mutual respect between our department and the community and highlight opportunities to enhance those relationships.”
The town hall meeting, which is open to the entire community, will include a panel of community leaders including Rev. Sam Montoya of Sinai Pentecostal Church; City employee and Director of the San Marcos Convention and Visitor Bureau, Rebecca Ybarra-Ramirez; and Police Chief Chase Stapp.
The conversation will be moderated by Liz Castañeda of Texas State University.
The Police Department is also working to organize a similar town hall meeting for the African-American community later early next month.
