Communities and Law Enforcement
July 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Darlington native and former Major League Baseball All-Star Orlando Hudson will co-host a conversation about law enforcement and the communities they serve with South Carolina Highway Patrol Col. Chris Williamson at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Dominion Church, 1030 Pearl St., Darlington.
The conversation also feature a presentation of the “We Agree” statement of the South Carolina Department of Public Safety. The “We Agree” statement was issued following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. In it, the department agrees that law enforcement plays a vital role in the protection and safety of citizens, that law enforcement officers are held to a higher standard, there is no place for the use of excessive force, that some officers have abused their power, that acts of some officers have bred animosity between the police and the communities they serve, and that police and their communities should work to lessen that animosity.
