South Lake Tahoe, CA- The City of South Lake Tahoe will hold a virtual town hall to discuss the efforts of the police department in our City.

“It’s important for our City and Community to come together to have a frank conversation about ways we can continuously improve the services offered by our police department,” said City Manager Joe Irvin, “We are excited to have the police and the public join in the conversation and talk about what’s working and what can be improved in South Lake Tahoe.”

Mayor Jason Collin, along with the City Manager, and Interim Police Chief will initiate the discussions while providing an overview of policing in South Lake Tahoe.  This will be followed up with the opportunity for the public to engage and ask questions of the panel.

“In moments like this it is important to hear from our community,” said Irvin, “There’s no question we are in the middle of tough and historic times right now. This is our chance to start a dialogue that helps improve the quality of life and police relations here in our City.”

We will be discussing a myriad of issues, including transparency, use of force, bias training, and many more. All of this to get feedback from you and to help our police department and our citizens work better, smarter, and stronger together.

This virtual town hall will be available online, and people will be able to make comments virtually, via an online form, or by phone at 530-542-6500. An interpreter will also be available for our Spanish speaking community.
