Community leaders and residents from several city neighborhoods meeting with Rock Hill police to learn what officers are doing in their community and how they can improve the relationship between residents and law enforcement.

The Community and Police T.E.A.M. event is being held Thursday at Manchester Meadows. T.E.A.M. stands for “Together, everyone achieves more.”

“Our police are doing great things throughout our city every day,” said Neal Barber, Rock Hill Council of Neighborhoods president. “Most of these activities go completely unnoticed and unrecognized.

“Here’s your chance to learn firsthand how police are already interacting with our community and to look for ways to help improve the interaction we already have.”

The event, which has already filled its available seating, will include a presentation by Rock Hill police followed by a Q&A session with Police Chief Chris Watts. After the Q&A, attendees will break into groups to discuss opportunities for neighborhoods and police to work together.
