U-M Police to hold public meeting at noon Friday

By Kyle Feldscher

The University of Michigan Department of Public Safety will hold a public meeting at noon Friday in the Michigan Union’s Anderson Room, according to police officials.

Spokeswoman Diane Brown said university students, faculty and staff, as well as the rest of the community, are invited to attend the meeting.

University police shift supervisors and officers involved in crime investigations, along with representatives of Housing and U-M Hospital Security, will be in attendance. The meeting serves as a chance for police personnel to publicly go through a regular meeting, where major crimes, trends and upcoming events are discussed.

U-M police held a similar meeting on Nov. 22 at the university’s police station. That meeting was said to be the first in a series of meetings promised by police officials.

The meeting will be held just a few hours after President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at 9:30 a.m. Friday at U-M’s Al Glick Field House.

Sounds like a good plan to me! I hope there are many that attend.

Could this headline be more vague ? Perhaps "Police to hold meeting" might provide even less information.

I agree that it is a good thing, but the journalism is weak. At some point, early in the article, I would expect there to be a clear statement of purpose for the meetings in general and an indication if there is an agenda for this specific occasion. Come on,, raise your standard!

This is good, and they should do it more often. It is curious timing, and I hope that the President need not visit the city just to make it happen again.
