The Suffolk County Police Department has released a list of community meetings its precincts have planned for 2011.
Each Suffolk precinct holds a monthly community meeting to encourage communication and transparency between the department and the residents it serves, according to a Police Department spokesman.
Meetings typically last between one and two hours and are attended by precinct commanders as a forum to provide and receive information from the community, the spokesman said.
The meetings are open to the public and a question-and-answer session follows reports by police department personnel.
Topics typically include crime reports and prevention, neighborhood watch and programs being run by the precinct.
Here’s the complete list of meetings for 2011.
