CCSO Hopes Forum Encourages ‘Unity’

A public forum Saturday is designed to build relationships between the sheriff’s office and the community.

The Unity in Our Communities event starts at 10 a.m. at Whiteville High School auditorium. It’s billed as an open dialogue between law enforcement and the public.

In a press release, the sheriff’s office said that residents will be welcome to ask questions of CCSO command staff, and express  specific concerns about their communities.

“The aim of this forum is to foster open dialogue between the community and local authorities, addressing crime concerns and other significant issues that impact our community,” the press release said. “This event will provide an opportunity for residents to share their concerns, ask questions, and engage in meaningful discussions with community dignitaries, church leaders, and law enforcement officials.”

“We believe that the key to a thriving community is open communication and cooperation,” Sheriff Bill Rogers said in a press release.  “By attending this forum, residents can help shape the future of Columbus County and ensure that their voices are heard.”

The forum is Saturday at 10 a.m. at Bowers Auditorium, 413 N Lee St., Whiteville.
