Upcoming Virtual Panel to Tackle Police Reform in Falls Church

The Mary Riley Styles Public Library in Falls Church is looking to move forward discussions about police reform in the community.

The City of Falls Church announced today that the library will host an online forum next Wednesday (Aug. 5).

The panelists for the event include the city’s police chief, the president of the Fairfax County NAACP and the city’s HR director. Jennifer Carroll, the library’s director, will moderate the event.

“Learn more about the national Mayor’s Pledge (which was signed by Mayor [David] Tarter in June); the City’s Use of Force Review Committee; the principles of 21st century policing; and what issues lie behind the ‘defund police’ movement,” according to the event description.

The event is set to start at 7 p.m. People can register for the Zoom event by emailing [email protected]
