It’s time for transparency. Time, as a community, to openly discuss Evanston Police Department structure, policies and responsibilities and ensure that the City is meeting the public safety needs of our residents.
We must look at the data. We must listen to our residents. We must be open to candid discussion about the roles we have assigned police within our community. All residents must be heard. And all residents must share in the work of determining how public safety can be be served.
