The goal of the Summit, titled "Mayor’s Safety Summit: Creating a Safer Community," is to bring together leaders from the law enforcement, judicial, faith-based, business and educational communities to share in discussions that will develop a framework for creating a strategic plan to make Tuscaloosa safer.
The Summit will address several topics aimed at creating a safer Tuscaloosa, including an in-depth look at crime statistics, habitual offenders, issues with the prison system and juvenile crime. A time for questions from panelists will be available after each session to allow panelists the opportunity to become actively engaged in the community safety discussion.
The Summit will begin at 8:45 a.m. with a meet and greet for attendees and will continue with welcoming remarks from Maddox at 9 a.m. It will conclude by 3:30 p.m. The River Market is located at 1900 Jack Warner Pkwy.
