Social media is one of the topics to be explored at the Evanston Police Department’s next Town Hall Meeting, to be held April 26 at the Morton Civic Center.

Also on the agenda are discussions on crime prevention and community policing.

The department “would like to invite citizens to join us and engage in thoughtful discussion,” it stated in a news release.

The meeting, to begin at 7 p.m. in the Parasol Room, is the third in a series of town hall style meetings hosted by the department. Each one focuses on a specific variety of topics and issues in a discussion facilitated by Dr. Gilo Kwesi Logan.

Each meeting also covers police policies, procedures, and protocols that are related to the discussion topics.

In the next month, the department promises to engage the community with press updates and social media as a way to maximize interest and attendance.

The meeting format will consist of a facilitated panel discussion, followed by a question-and-answer session.
