Local Police Host Community Form in Dalton


DALTON, Ga. (WDEF) – Tuesday evening, the Dalton Police Department and the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office, along with other community leaders held an open community forum in the Mack Gaston Community Center.

This is the third time in just three months police officers and community members have came together to have an open and honest discussion, allowing residents to ask the tough questions they’ve had on their minds for quite some time.

“There were a lot of questions that people–the citizens here have, and we didn’t get to all of those questions,” said Dalton Police Department’s Chief Jason Parker, “which I think illustrates the need to have this meeting to start with.”

Chief Parker also said the department hopes to find a location to host future community forums like this one every three months.
