St. Pete Youth Voice Their Opinions with Local Law Enforcement



St. Petersburg, FL (September 10, 2019) – This past Saturday, September 7, more than 30 middle and high school students met with law enforcement officers from the St. Petersburg Police Department at the Campbell Park Community Center to discuss current issues and concerns facing the youth and police. The conversation was the first in a series to help strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and youth in St. Pete.

Takeaways from the discussions will be used to inform a plan of action to bridge the gap between youth and law enforcement.

The event was made possible by the City of St. Petersburg Police Department, Civilian Police Review Committee, Community Action Response Team and Cohorts of Champions, as well as the Pinellas County Urban League and community volunteers.

The next session will be on December 7 at 9:30 a.m. at the Roberts Recreation Center.
