Community and religious leaders from around the Truckee Meadows will come together with local law enforcement agencies during the Symposium on Community and Policing on Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Washoe County Commission Chambers.

The purpose of the fifth annual symposium is to continue these important cultural discussions and offer the community a chance not only to connect and engage with local law enforcement, but to ask questions and learn more about the current issues that face our growing community.

The symposium will begin at 6 p.m. with a Town Hall, during which attendees will hear from the leaders of various regional law enforcement agencies. Dr. Norris Dupree, who collaborated with law enforcement to come up with the concept of launching a symposium in 2014, will serve as moderator and emcee.

Starting at 7 p.m., attendees will have the opportunity to participate in three separate Breakout Areas, which will cover the following topics:

  • Area 1: Immigration
  • Area 2: Hate Crimes
  • Area 3: Open Discussion

The symposium has received invaluable support from local businesses, churches and individuals such as Dr. Dupree and Dr. Cesar Minera. Several other entities and organizations made this symposium possible, and their contributions are greatly appreciated. 

Early attendees are invited to visit informational booths starting at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments and pizza will be provided from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Special thanks to the Optimist Club of Reno, The ROW and Country Financial for providing food and refreshments.  

Local law enforcement and government agencies that will be participating in the symposium include: 

  • Nevada Highway Patrol
  • Reno Police Department
  • Reno-Sparks Indian Colony Tribal Police
  • Sparks Police Department
  • University of Nevada, Reno Police Services
  • Washoe County District Attorney’s Office
