Brianna Owen: Safety working group appreciates support

Thursday, July 15, 2021

My name is Brianna Owen, and I am the co-chair of the Community Safety Working Group (CSWG) in Amherst. We have been working since early November to fulfill our charge to (a) make recommendations on alternative ways of providing public safety services to the community and (b) make recommendations on reforms to the current organizational and oversight structures of the Amherst Police Department.

We just finished the first part of our charge and are now moving forward to the second part. As a group we have received so much support from the community. I am writing this note of appreciation from the CSWG so the community knows how grateful we are for the continued support, and so we can encourage people to inform us of our work for the second part of our charge.
