Rockdale County Sheriff, Eric Levett was on, On Point with Juandolyn Stokes to invite members of the clergy to the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office to participate in a Clergy Roundtable to discuss Use of Force and why law enforcement uses it.
Additionally, the department will also be demonstrating use of force tactics , using simulators and sharing ideas about how best to foster community partnerships. Levett says although law enforcement is a key pillar of the community, so is the clergy.
"I thought it was important that we first connect with our clergy because when things happen in our communities oftentimes clergy is one of the main pillars we reach out to," said Levett.
The roundtable will take place on Saturday, July 17 at the Rockdale County sheriff's Office at 911 Chambers Drive from 8 a.m.-2p.m. Please call the Sheriff's Office 770-278-8000 to register.
