The program benefits should be marketed to the public more aggressively.
From my experience, the programs themselves seem fine. I think the changes are around promotion and visibility. A.) Increase awareness of the meetings; B.) Increase the accessibility of the meetings (online streaming, television, radio, teleconference, email transcript, etc.). The meetings I have attended have been very poorly attended, but shared great information. I think if more people were aware of the CAPS meetings or had better access to them, there would be greater involvement…hopefully leading to more community involvement.
I support the CAPS officers in the 4th Ward. I will take guidance from the Department of Justice Report if their need to be adjustments.
