For Immediate Release
Citizens are asked to offer their thoughts and ideas this week on public safety in Savannah through a special online form available at www.savannahga.gov/publicsafetycomment.
The comments will be compiled and presented to a special Public Safety Roundtable that will meet Monday, May 20, at 2 p.m. in the Savannah Civic Center. The Roundtable will be comprised of the top elected and appointed officials representing the major entities that touch public safety, including law enforcement, the courts, probation and parole, education, city and county governments, and various nonprofits and the faith-based community.
The goal of the Roundtable will be to identify key issues impacting public safety in our community, and begin a process that will create an action plan to make our community safer. The Roundtable wants to hear from the public on this matter, and has set up the online form to solicit input. Members of the public should submit their comments at www.savannahga.gov/publicsafetycomment by noon Friday, May 17 so they can be compiled and incorporated into the Roundtable discussion
