Lexington Police asking the public to speak out

People living in Lexington will have a couple of chances later this month to share their opinions about Lexington Police.

Police say this will give the public an opportunity to speak out about their experiences, thoughts, and suggestions for the Division of Police. It comes as part of the national accreditation process for Lexington Police.

On Monday, July 26, Lexington Police say a team of assessors from The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will speak with people to gauge their perception of the Division of Police.

People living in Lexington, who want to share their opinions, are being encouraged to call a hotline, 859-258-3664, on July 26 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Police say the one-on-one chats during those two hours will be just one of the ways the Division of Police will be reviewed and analyzed.

CALEA assessors will also attend a special meeting on July 26 at 6 p.m. at Urban County Council Chambers on East Main Street. People will be able to share their opinions about Lexington Police there as well.
