The motion by Saige Martin, Nicole Stewart, and Mary-Ann Baldwin to kill Raleigh’s Citizens Advisory Councils also killed monthly meetings with police officers. That’s 200 meetings a year throughout the City between citizens and officers that will not be replaced.
One of the reasons given for killing the CACs is to cut back on spending. But isn’t fostering good communications between police and citizens worth the money?
Two hundred meetings – two hundred opportunities now gone.
This is why I voted against this ill conceived motion motion to kill CACs.
