Tuscaloosa Police host Hispanic community town hall

Tuscaloosa Police Diversity Outreach Program

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - Tuscaloosa Police are continuing their diversity outreach program, this time meeting with members of the Latino community.

It was a packed house at a recent event where the Hispanic community in Tuscaloosa got to meet with police officers in a town hall, designed just for them.

The Tuscaloosa Police Department led the discussion, joined by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and Northport Police. Officers were seen getting to know members of the Latino community to answer questions and talk about concerns about policing in Tuscaloosa.

This is just another example of “Project Unity” - a city plan to help build a much stronger bridge between the city, police and the communities they serve.

A spokeswoman with Tuscaloosa Police said they plan to host similar specialty outreach town hall meetings like this to cater to different parts of the community in the future.
