Community forum with new Pittsburgh police chief scheduled

The second of two “community conversations” with acting Pittsburgh police Chief Cameron McLay is 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday at Pentecostal Temple, 6300 East Liberty Blvd.

Residents should bring their questions, concerns and suggestions for how the department should operate, said organizer Tim Stevens of the Black Political Empowerment Project. He said he intends the discussion to be a constructive one.

During the first session, held a week ago in the Hill District, residents asked about preventing racial profiling, increasing the number of officers walking beats and plans for hiring more minority police officers. McLay told the gathering his goal is to close the gap between the police and the community.

For more information, contact Stevens at 412-758-7898 or [email protected].

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
