Dialogue between police and Hispanic community continues tonight

"Metro Police will meet with members of Nashville’s Hispanic community from 6:30-8:30 p.m. today at Glencliff High School, 160 Antioch Pike, for a 'listening forum' to foster better understanding."

"'This is a great opportunity to improve relations between residents and the police officers who patrol our neighborhoods,' Mayor Bill Purcell said. In less than four years, the population of Hispanic residents in Nashville has almost doubled."

"The forum will include ways in which the language barrier and cultural differences isolate minorities and what can be to done to create healthy relationships between Hispanic people and Metro police."
