Southern Humboldt residents met last evening, Thurs., Jan. 15, 2015, in the Redway Elementary School Gym to hear panel presentations by law enforcement and the D.A.'s Office regarding re-staffing to increase Sheriff's Officers' presence in the southern part of the county and to discuss community involvement in helping keep residents and property safe. The meeting was facilitated by Second District Supervisor, Estelle Fennel, and the panel included Garberville-Redway Chamber of Commerce Director, Cinnamon Paula, and a number of the Chamber's Board Members.
Thursday's meeting, designed to focus on solutions, followed a previous Town Hall meeting, held last June, where a huge crowd gathered to express concern about the lack of police presence and response to crime in the Southern Humboldt area.
Tune in to KMUD this Monday, Jan. 19 from 8 - 9 am, for more information about the meeting.
