Chico Calif.—Some of Chico’s community members are saying an open line of communication with law enforcement is important now more than ever.
One of Chico’s local business owners organized an opportunity to build those relationships with law enforcement.
Law enforcement has the job of protecting the community from everything from littering and vandalism to threats against individual safety.
Teri Dubose who owns Braod Pawn in the downtown area says, the key to addressing the problems is to know your next step if something does happen.
She noted that it is important that you give police an opportunity to understand the scope of what is going on.
She organized a luncheon to give people that opportunity.
Chico State Police, Butte County Search and Rescue, Sheriff’s Office, Park Rangers, and Chico Police are all on the invite list.
Community groups donated a bratwurst lunch barbeque for the officers, and people who attend will receive a 10% discount.
The luncheon is happening Wednesday at 1 p.m. at the Parkside Taproom downtown.
