The Berkeley Heights Diversity Council invites the community to “We are Listening” our next Listening Session with the Berkeley Heights Police Department on Wednesday, October 14 at 7pm on Zoom. Many community members have asked for an increased dialogue with our Berkeley Heights Police Department and the BH Police are eager to continue to open up that dialogue.
The Listening Session will be held as a virtual gathering on Zoom on Wednesday, October 14 at 7pm. To join the conversation, please register online.
Please join us together with other members of the community to hear and share views of how to continue to make Berkeley Heights more inclusive and welcoming at this critical point in our nation’s history. A “Listening Session” is meant as a community brainstorming session, a time to raise concerns and to hear ideas to help ensure that Berkeley Heights becomes increasingly inclusive and welcoming to all. It will be a great opportunity for the BHPD to share updates on their community policing program and listen to residents.
The Berkeley Heights Diversity Council continues to host opportunities for residents to share views, ask questions, listen to each other and be heard by important stakeholders in Berkeley Heights including the Berkeley Heights Police Department, and our schools. The BHDC has a long-standing partnership with the Berkeley Heights Police Department and this is just one way for the BHPD to be available to residents.
The intent is for the BHPD to listen and take away questions so that they can take the time to respond to residents in a thoughtful way.
This is the second Listening Session with the BHPD this year.
The Berkeley Heights Diversity Council was founded to honor and embrace the diverse cultures and perspectives within Berkeley Heights. Our goal is to spread awareness and foster inclusion.
The BHDC is open and welcoming to all who reside in Berkeley Heights wishing to celebrate the diversity of our great town together and can be reached at BHdiversity@gmail.com
