MADISON, [11/21/2023] — The Office of the Independent Monitor (OIM) is pleased to invite the Madison community to participate in an upcoming Community Engagement Session, an opportunity for residents to contribute their voices and ideas to shape the future of the city’s police oversight process.
The primary objective of the session is to gather valuable feedback and input on the Police Civilian Oversight Board (PCOB) and the OIM’s complaint process. As the primary means for the public to communicate with this independent and civilian-led police oversight agency, it is crucial that Madison residents actively participate in these discussions to ensure their expectations and desires are considered.
This Community Engagement Session will take place on November 29th, 2023, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Madison Municipal Building in Conference Room 206. Attendees can enjoy a complimentary dinner provided as a gesture of appreciation for their community involvement.
The Office of the Independent Monitor and the PCOB will record the discussions for future analysis. This will help ensure that the thoughts and concerns of the Madison community are present in future discussions and the finalization of the complaint process.
Community members who attend this evening of open dialogue and constructive discussions will play a vital role in shaping the City of Madison’s newest department. By actively engaging with the creation of this important function, residents can make their voices heard and contribute to the accountability and responsiveness of the Madison Police Department to the diverse needs and concerns of the community.
